Very disappointed with this cruise I was so looking forward to it.The food was tasteless and bland in the restaurant and buffet.The only decent meals were the ones you paid for in The Grill or Infusion .Most evenings I had chicken nuggets and chips from the kids menu which was the same for the whole trip.The entertainment wasn't good either apart from the comedian .Lack of sun beds caused arguments amongst some passengers.The pools were overtaken by teenagers dive bombing and jumping off the the rails around the pools.On deck 8 there were 2 jacuzzis at one point there was 10 children in one of them.There wasn't any kind of security on the ship and none of the staff spoke to the children about doing dangerous things that could injure them.It took a whole week for the staff to decide to separate the pools one for children and the other for adults.My cabin was fine until I looked at the sink basin. It had obviously discoloured so instead of replacing the basin it had been painted not sprayed,painted with a brush.The soap dish part was disgusting and the paint was peeling off.The shower curtain hooks were brown with rust.I put in a complaint about the hooks and basin ,the hooks were replaced but there was some confusion over the basin that never got sorted.The ship is dated and is not suited for children as there is nothing for them to do the pools were both 6ft deep and not suitable for young children there was no lifeguard either.This cruise was nothing like I expected it to be.

Not what I expected for the price I paid.
