Destinations looked interesting However it was quicker flying from Gatwick to Venice than getting on this cruise with five different queues. Lets try Dinner - Over 1.5 hours to serve and that will be nearly 3 Euros for a bottle of water with your dinner and help yourself to ice.

Lets try breakfast - cereals the packaging would taste better even with milk White toast because they will not turn up the toaster. On complaining I am told by the Maitre D lots of people like white toast. NO you cannot have poached egg in the buffet either because if they gave you poached egg some 150-200 other customers might want it!! After going through the toaster three times you could probably have sanded the deck with it. My wife ran a B and B for 22 years and NO one asked for white toast. Lets try Afternoon tea with Bulk jam and synthetic cream or carrot cake mix.

Lets try The PARADISE Hamburger bar. Really catering knowledge here. Cook all the burgers in the morning and then microwave them for 30 seconds throughout the day. Cook the chips and then put them out in trays in the cold. Guess what cold chips. I did offer to assist the (Food and Beverage???) manager to change this as I have set up and owned a Burger Bar but this was ignored. You may think that people that have gone to PARADISE, even though it is a burger bar, would be happy, NO they are not.

Most miserable stewards ever. Did not introduce themselves and looked as if they were about to get the sack.
