Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

We have been on several other cruises over the years and this was by far the worst. Passengers made up of mainly Italian and French; not many English on board, so excursions were multi lingual. Passengers were embarking and disembarking at each port which caused disruption, something we are not used to, and resulted in lifeboat drill every day and closure of bars whilst the drill was carried out.

Le Vele buffet restaurant too small for the level of customers onboard at difficulty finding a table and staff when we needed a drink. No tea coffee facility in the cabins. Smoking on board is allowed in certain indoor areas which then spreads to non smoking areas, which we did not like. Food quality was excellent in all areas. Evening restaurant food and staff were excellent but the two sitting times were 7pm and 9.30pm.

We booked a suite, but it was found to be just a large balcony cabin. Entertainment was approximately 30mins per night in the Theatre by the same performers which we found boring on the three nights we went into the theatre.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B2

Smaller than expected from the 28 sq m advertised in the brochure. No tea and coffee facilities in the cabin. Otherwise, we were pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the cabin.
