Chose this cruise because of the ports of call, all of which were superb, especially loved Venice and Split. Unfortunately we were disappointed with the ship, it was dated in parts. Our cabin was spacious and kept immaculate by our steward. The food was mediocre. The same food was served in the waiter restaurant as in the self service Lido, only you got small portions! We ate in the Lido most nights, but by the time you queued, got your food, then your cutlery, then found somewhere to sit, the food was lukewarm. We went to the Showboat every night, the three girls were amazing singers but a couple of the lads let them down. One night quite a few people walked out during the show. The best performance was Phantom of the Opera. Our favourite bar was the Medusa as there was a group on called Top Men who were really good. Problem was if you didn't get out of the Showboat quick there were no seats left in Medusa. The flight home was a shambles, queuing up outside Corfu airport in the heat, only a few people at a time let in once they started checking in. No in flight magazines on the plane, no tea or coffee and running out of certain food.
