Summer cruise around the Canary Islands trying a cruise company not used before, or again. We sailed many cruises using varied cruise companies. Food not much choice poor standard. Hygiene no hand wash provided when entering self service buffet, until reported. Entertainment, only one guest artist ( comedian impressionist) appeard 3 times. Dance group do most shows, not too bad. Cruise director, magician! No personality made me feel uncomfortable with his amateurish presentation, more like a children’s entertainer. Dress code, never adhered to Formal nights people allowed in main resteraunt wearing T shirts. Dress code given on daily program no one bothered. ship is described as adult only, however children were allowed on at less than £200. No entertainment for them so they ran riot in every swimming pool much to the annoyance of older passengers wanting to swim.( jumping in pools, jumping in onto large inflatables, 12 children in jacuzzi in over 18s area. Not children’s fault no supervision from anyone. Not only annoying, but dangerous. Rude staff.

Disappointing cruise
