Food and complementary drink very good. Good variety of four restaurants, though the best, for which an extra 40$ per head was charged, apparently had the same menu every night. The wines provided free were good and the wine list for additional wines was interesting and reasonably priced. Embarkation and disembarkation efficient, little waiting, plenty of meeters,greeters and porters. Excellent service from cheerful and willing shipboard staff. No attempt by ships officers to socialise. Excursions good but overpriced. Very smooth ship, no vibration. Excellent lifts, no waiting. No lectures prior to each destination country. One very good lecturer on world affairs, gave four talks. No lectures on arts, culture, etc. Good and comfortable theatre space, but largely wasted. The only evening entertainment was provided by a group of five young singers, who, however talented, could not be expected to entertain a well travelled set of passengers for 14 nights. And over-amplified to the point of distortion. Seemed a low cost provision. The differences between this ship and others we have been on lay mainly in the food and free drink,but the overall cost was at least twice the daily rate of previous ships. Good but vastly overpriced, particularly when excursions are added which, in most of our previous cruises, have been included.

Excellent itinerary, starting and finishing in port of London
