We are just about done with the cruise in 2 days...we have done a lot of traveling and while the ship is very nice and food quality it high-the real purpose of the trip was to see the local history, culture etc and by far this trip had the worst excursions we have ever experienced.
So I'm not going to focus on the ship or food but on the reason at least we came and that was to see the UK and Ireland.
The tour guides are independent contractors with little or no training. They are not in touch with other buses or guides or the ship-so why does this matter...? On 3 trips we have lost or had passenger issues and the lack of coordination made the situation worse.
