Sail Date: Feb 2017

I chose this because I wanted to see Cuba before it was spoilt. Ship was old, no use to disabled. Every seat in the restaurant was either broken or badly repaired. The entertainment was awful. Singers couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket and the three “comedians” we had all told the same jokes to different degrees of bad. The ship rocked and rolled even when tied up in port. One night was particularly bad and I was the only one on our table for ten who rocked up for dinner; the dining room was practically empty and it still took over two hours to serve me. The food was ok but, extremely small portions and an excess of courgettes. It was downright dangerous. The hospital did extremely well with all the broken bones. Food and drinks flew off the table and the tables and chairs flew as well in the buffet. This was about my 30th cruise (1st with CMV and last) the worst I have ever had. The painting course was very expensive although the crafters were very good value and some useful items produced. No launderette. Very few pubic toilets. I rang them to take me off their mailing list - I wouldn’t go with them again even if they offered me a world cruise for free!,

Cabin Review

Cabin 2

Bed sloped and if I turned over I was liable to fall out and the pillow felt as if it was stuffed with old socks. The duvet was too short, if I wanted warm shoulders I had cold feet.
