In keeping with the baby boomer penchant for cruising! and my wife's gentle persuasion(she had done a cruise to Europe);I decided to go on a cruise on the Sapphire Princess in April of 2016!
quite a few setbacks e.g. embarkation,visa problems,lack of communication, shore excursions.
Embarkation: endless wait,form filling;chaotic! a young staff member suffered a seizure! mass confusion! no medical staff(God forbid if a passenger was to suffer a medical episode)!!
