  • Cabin Type: Oceanview Stateroom

Worst cruise out of 7 that we have been. We'll start with the food in the restaurant 1/ Black hair in the food on 1st night (for the wife),2/ Black hair in the food again a couple of nights later(for the wife).3/Chicken not cooked PINK in the middle-No,No!! 4/ food cold a lot of the time had to send it back often. 5/Appetiser-lamb skewer cold-sent it back. 6/Veal shank 2 small pieces of meat in it, rest gristle & bone, would not give it to a dog.7/Eggs not cooked properly in the morning-still clear(white).Waiters & maitre D very helpful not their fault but the kitchens.

Buffet -1/ Burgers horrible.2/ Cold fries all the time- had to wait for hot ones.3/ Most food cold & unappetising ok if you like pizza & pasta every day.4/ fried eggs straight from the kitchen cold.

Deck 13 - Big screen - NO films at all for 24 days only stupid adverts - why? - was told we would have to buy them EH!! what a waste of money.

Deck 14 - No drinks , no waiters 2-3 hundred on deck - was told by waitress they are only 2 of them & they just do the 13 deck. Customers & company missing out.

No disembarkation meeting was told by a matter of fact receptionist it was yesterday, was not told about it nor were any other Brits.

Management often off hand & could not sort out problems.

No taxi to take us to the hotel in Barbados, cost $25 for a private one.

And so it goes on & on & on

Was offered 10% discount & £50 on another cruise, don't think so!!

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom
Cabin O2 8072

Cabin neat & tidy & always kept clean, the shower gel & shampoo seemed a bit on the cheap side, otherwise a pleasant stay in the cabin.
