Recently returned from a Mediterranean cruise aboard the Armonia. We chose the cruise for the different ports of call and were pleased with all the destinations.Our one excursion to Pompeii was very good.
The food on board at the Le Pergola restaurant on the ship was good and the waiters that looked after us were excellent. Our cabin was lovely and clean and well looked after.
However, the buffet breakfast in the restaurant was a free for all, lots of waiters but no service to speak of! Self service was the order of the day and also at lunch time. There was no organisation and a poor choice - the same every day. The staff in the Marco Polo and throughout the ship were sullen and unhelpful, we had to go find a waiter to get a drink and they didn't feel it necessary to smile at all. The buffet/restaurant staff were the same and not at all what we are used to.
