I chose this cruise as a Christmas present for my husband and thought it was a bargain as it was advertised as "buy one get one free", if this had been the case I would have been very disappointed as it was not worth the money I paid let alone twice the price. The embarkation/disembarkation procedures were ridiculous with lots of being told to take a seat and wait. The cabin was clean and comfortable but way too hot even after the temperature control was fixed. The crew were pleasant and helpful. The real low point was the food, we were given a card on the first night telling us which restaurant we were to eat in and what time, we were seated at a table with 4 strangers (although they were very nice people and other diners frowned and tutted at us for laughing), but the food was awful and we were rushed from one course to the next without time for breath. The following night we chose to eat at the buffet which was even worse. The breakfast buffet was dreadful, although there was plenty of choice, there is no place for mayonnaise in scrambled egg!

The cabin was clean and comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities would have been nice
