Columbus Cruise Review by Laurian
- Sail Date: December 2018
- Destination: British Isles & Western Europe
Boarding was very good, fast and efficient. Cabin good. We chose mid ship and it was a very quiet cabin. Lifeboat drill was chaotic to say the least. We were all called to the theatre, checked off and then sent out to the muster point on deck. There chaos ruled. Checking people off again and then proceeded to demonstrate the life jacket ( why couldn’t this have been done in the theatre). We were on 2nd sitting so went to the restaurant after the show. We had to queue initially to wait for the first sitting to clear and then directed to our table. However some very drunk idiot decided to make a spectacle of himself and complain about the wait. Generally the meals were lukewarm which was extremely disappointing. They would have been nice if hot. Our restaurant servers were very nice and efficient but the bars were understaffed and took too many orders on at once. However one bar steward shone in the raffles bar working very hard and friendly.
Entertainment was excellent especially Angelina and Lee. As a group the singers weren’t great but when the sang solo they were very good. The dancers were top class also. The solo violinist was excellent also.
We enjoyed the excursions apart from the coach on return from Brussels which dropped us quite a bit away from the terminal. Getting on and off the ship for excursions were smooth on the whole.
Found the ship to be rather small for our liking so probably wouldn’t go again.
