This is the worse cruise ever, not sure where to start. First the positive lifts are great, no waiting as plenty of them.

Now the negatives, staff are rude, miserable and clearly not there to please, food in restaurant was appalling and water has to be paid for. Serve yourself buffet has a better choice but a majority of people have chosen that over restaurant clearly as queuing is horrendous and finding a free seat impossible. Tea and coffee is only available at breakfast and sometimes for an hour in afternoon, you can purchase these but expensive and everything has a 15% service charge.

Ship docked miles in the depth of ports (to save on port charges) Shuttle service out of port was another charge 12 euros per person per trip and chaotic with no queuing in place and a free for all.
