After reading previous reviews of this cruise i wasn't expecting it to be fantastic, but it was even worse than the review said. We have been cruising for over 10 years with many different cruise companies and this was the worst one I've been on by a long shot

The ship was extremely old and outdated. My cabin had wooden pillars on the wall which creaked and cracked every time the boat moved. On further inspection i found pieces if paper slotted under the wood to try and fix the problem so RC were clearly aware of this issue but hadn't bothered to fix it properly. The bedding had marks and stains on it when i arrived in the room and despite asking for it to be changed many times the same marks were still there on debarkation day! The balcony door stopped opening half way through the trip so we were unable to use it as noone came to fix it.

The entertainment on the boat was abysmal! The shows were some of the worst I've ever seen, singers not in time or tune, dancers out of time, stumbling on top of the shows just being dull. The only decent night was when a professional singer was brought onboard.
