  3. Amadeus Royal
Cruise was part of a 19 day trip but was glad we only had 9 nights on this ship. My own fault for not reading the fine print - was on the Haydn Deck with only a VERY small window (expecting a panoramic window) with NO view and water lapping outside. The cabin was small and stuffy with only basic amenities. Rooms were clean but had to ask for the bed linen to be changed after 4 nights. The ship is small and at times felt crowded especially in the lounge where there was not enough room for everyone to sit but there was no other room to choose. The sun deck was good when it was warm enough to use it The dining and bar staff were the ship's saving grace. Could not fault the service we received from our dedicated staff members - Ved and Marjiana - these 2 people made our cruise a memorable experience. Always friendly, helpful and full of fun and the company should be proud of these great ambassadors. Entertainment was the same every night which got a bit monotonous. The main cruise director was rude to guests in the lounge and made many people feel uncomfortable. The second cruise director (Italian) was good and tried to assist all guests. I will be cruising again but will take greater care of which company I use - the reviews here are very helpful. Thank goodness for Ved and Marijana - they gave us great memories.

Cabin Review

Cabin 109
Small window, no view
Limited room in the cabin
Had to ask service staff to change bed linen after 4 nights - not sure how long they would have left it
