Cabin:

the chosen cruise was for ports of call. The weather did not fail to please. Found entertainment lame. found food mediocre. Also, the baby prawns should have been peeled as they were on the buffet with poo still in them Tomatoes not available after the first week. Did not like the look of the beans.Also cauliflower cheese mushy. You should steam cauliflower not boil it. laundrette not available in the night. Only in use when everyone wanted to use it. Crowded. Mayonnaise and vinegar in sachets should bein containers as very mucky to tear open. Onshore was fine found friends and guides. Out on deck late looking at the star's, the staff treated you like a weirdo, walking past and saying hello in a worried voice. asked to have a ball to throw through the net in netball court not allowed. Yet staff where allowed. Asked for a large size tee shirt for deck walk, only small size avail, as they could not be bothered to go and fetch larger tee shirt from the stock room. Gym nice.

On leaving the ship. disembarkation, we were taken to the airport and herded like cattle past customs. Had to wait 3 hours at the airport for plain stuck in departures no chance for a smoke or a cheap drink. Onshore great onboard not so good if you are single you tend to get patronized I am an independent lady. I love to dance and sing along. In my own way.

Only here they like puppets dance and everyone to do the same dance. Sorry did not like and also pool light turned off as I was playing on my own late. Could not sleep in the dismal cabin so I was out and about, up late. Lots more to depress me but onshore made up for the dirty old ship. Also, the customers were the best. Nice friendly lot.

Cabin Review

Cabin queen Bed

Deck 7 often showered with dirty water from the window cleaners above. Should have been cordoned off. Still, passengers were showered with it. Happened on the last day to me. With no chance to shower and change as Suitcases gone to the airport. also, cabin unavailable well before midday. On the day of departure.cabin not good. The queen bed was 2 dirty mattresses pushed together. Did not get a single supplement that I asked for. Or the single bed. Had to pay full 2 for a small reduced in size due to beds cabin. Staff glum on the whole.

They are given so much time to do there work. They are not hard worked. Sheets not changed in 2 weeks stay and hoovering done only 1 in 3 days. in my cabin.
