Sail Date: May 2016

We choose this cruise as there was an interesting itinerary and good guest speakers on subjects that appealed. Things started to go wrong as soon as we got on board when the wardrobe door fell off and the problem was treated with indifference by the person that attended to sort it out. The cabin was noisy and the beds very uncomfortable. Cabin towels were clearly very old and worn. The shampoo was obviously of poor quality. The food was terrible for a cruise of this expense with the meat virtually inedible. The salads every day came with the same processed meat. The sweets were unappetising and sickly sweet. The best feature was the bread and soup! There was no choice of wine and it was of poor quality. No maps were provided for the ports we visited as is usual with other cruise ships and boats.

Altogether, this was a very bad experience. The ship is clearly run on the cheap giving a visual impression of opulence.

Cabin Review

Cabin b grade

We had a great start - the wardrobe door fell off and that gave the clue to what was to become our worse cruise experience by far. This boat is a shocker: it looks great but don't touch it with a barge pole.
