We had a fantastic time despite concerns following the norovirus outbreak on the previous cruise. The ship was immaculate and kept very clean. The cabin was good and again kept immaculately. The staff were fantastic - they must have had a really tough time the week before but the service couldn't have been better. They were all welcoming, efficient and nothing was too much. The food was a bit bizarre at times, particularly with the themed nights, but generally was tasty and well presented - not to really good restaurant standard but then they are serving large numbers of people in a short time. Drinks were reasonably priced considering the captive market. We were disappointed with a couple of the trips we went on but then they aren't really our thing. Don't bother with the Berlin trip from Rostock - 6 hours travelling and we were whisked round on a coach and were on and off for a few minutes at the sites. The tour guide sent us to sleep!! The docks were always a fair way from the city centres, but at least we got some exercise. Some of the others ships docked much closer than the MP, but then maybe that's the price you pay (or don't) as we felt the cruise was really good value. Overall a great experience.

Thanks Marco Polo
