Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview Stateroom

The cruise was the culmination of our 40th wedding anniversary celebrations, and was particularly appropriate as apart from the start in Venice, and end in Durban, we had not been to any other destination on the cruise.

However, whilst in general it was most enjoyable, it was let down by some lack of attention to detail, and admin problems, especially at embarkation, where there was some sort of problem which took a couple of hours to resolve, but we were not INFORMED as to what was happening.

Drinks packages seemed to be a particular problem.

There is no excuse for the pathetic salt and pepper pots on the table, which were generally blocked, and you had to screw the top off to get salt out. Certainly below standard.

The ship generally is looking a bit "tired" now, stained carpets, fittings loose, rattan furniture fraying.

Excursions seemed expensive - I booked a private excursion to Petra at a much more competitive rate.

The best thing was the almost total lack of children on board!!!
