Sail Date: Sep 2018
Cabin: Oceanview Stateroom

We choose this cruise for its ports of call oh how i wish we had not The buffet restaurant served cold food with only 1 vegetable mainly carrots Everything covered in oil In the main restaurant the food was again cold ,service was very slow and portions extremely small.

Entertainment was extremely poor like Butlins at sea extremely noisy and childlike .One game was people competing against each other by running in to the audience to retrieve the nominated item this being on one occasion an item of contraception .Other than this you could listen to classical music.At sea days of which we had 4 were so boring with the odd quiz ,a knitting circle or an arts & crafts table.

Service was quite slow although staff worked their socks off.Just more required.The Ports of call were ok but due to bad weather we could not get in to Amsterdam so docked further out and they provided a shuttle service to a train station so people could make their own way. This was fine apart from the lack of shuttle buses leaving several disappointed people unable to make the trip to Amsterdam.
