Arrived at the Wharf to find out the ship was still in drydock in another country and wouldn't be ready for 2+ days. Not only did we lose this time, two ports were eliminated and time cut short in three ports. The cabins were like a building site with coke and beer bottles, razor blades, screws and nails on the floor, bathrooms flooded, no TV movies and faulty aircon. After complaints 50% of the fare was refunded. The fait accompli was on arrival in Honfleur when people had been told there would be plenty of taxis to find out there are only two in the town so many of us were left standing for two hours till a bus was hired and we were charged a bus fare for transport. Certainly no six star luxury cruise. Save your money and go on any of the other many reputable cruise lines.
