Don’t trust them with credit or travel cards. Billed twice so no money left

Sail Date: Aug 2018
Cabin: Superior Veranda Suite

They need to supply tea making facilities in cabin. Butler service is about 30 mins for a cuppa. Had problems with water not being hot enough for cup of tea with room service and in restaurants. Complained and they did try, but some were a bit smart about it. Food not always hot. Room service breakfast was often just warm or cold. Toast was cold and like concrete. Pizzas dreadful. Pub lunch was bad food was cold and tasteless tried bits left most of it then went to the buffet. Need more menu choices in the Restaurants. Only seemed to be Seafood or Meat for mains and raw meats or seafoods for starters. Soups 2 seafood and tomatoe. I can't eat ,Ost seafood but my husband enjoyed. No duck or chicken. I didn't like the Italian restaurant. The lunch buffet was best for choices. scored 8 out of 10.

My main problem is with their system in handling payments. paid $1914 on travel card 10/9 and then on 12/9 they put it thru again for $1914 which is pending but showing a date of 10/9. I now have no money to spend in England it is all frozen! They say this is normal and I have to wait for my bank to clear it 5 days. Their attitude, contact you bank, I did who cancelled and told by email they would send new ones in 7 days to Aust address. No help when you are travelling. This should never have happened why would a Company take full payment then 2 days after this put through a hold for the same amount but with different reference nos and think that this was the way to do business.

Was told this is their system they just didn't have any empathy at all. Very very angry and disappointed.

Port Reviews

St. Petersburg

Guide was a bit slow with a loud voice, needed those voice boxes. Also more chairs for people to sit down and rest.

St. Petersburg

Very good wish they would have done a quicker Guided tour for my husband so we could have fitted more in. It was great because I could go off and do my own thing except for the Hermitage, which I think I could have although the guide said I couldn't

Skagen

Very good excursion
