She is an old boat but appears to be well maintained by the crew cabins shabby but sheak house keeping,bar staff and the waiting team servicing the evening in the Waldorf restaurant top notch however the Evining meal was on most night passibie for restraunt style food (only one tuc biscuit with Mouse portion of cheese)but the same can not be said for the breakfast or lunch menus Breakfast used cheap smoked sausage inedible greasy bacon watery beans tomatoes and very unappetising scrambled eggs cheap cardboard breakfast cereals not great however the lunch buffet in Marcos took the biscuit. salad meats of spam luncheon meats salami not a real portion of reconisibile meat chicken ham pork etc that my years of cruising could recognise if you love cream of beetroot or parsnip soup you've cracked it.all the deserts are servived in small portions with all the imitation whipped cream you can manage. There is a grill on the deck at the bistro rear most days one day it may be a sausage next day a chicken leg the next a portion of ropey salmon and finally a hamburger Afternoon tea is a little better but inedible sandwiches (old BR style curled ends) what part of salami and cream cheese is a ham&cheese sandwich. supper don't go there 0 out of 10 Greasy deep fried chicken wings of a sort. Entertainment poor shows not great young inexperienced singers very unfunny comedian.DJ was great. Bench style seating in the theatre not very comfortable as are the plastic garden style chairs on rear decks first and last time with this company it's true you get what you pay for, I will pay more in future with one of the other cruise lines no such thing as a free lunch (or cruise)

Great staff, poor very poor food
