Couldn’t get no worse!!

First ever cruise and what a let down. We were on the inaugural cruise from 2 April 2019. In my opinion the ship was just not ready.

Arrived on board before midday and cabins not ready. On an inaugural cruise?? However, advised to go to Pool Deck where food and drinks were available. That was fine but the toilets were blocked. No water for washing hands, toilet tissue, sanitiser. A recipe for passengers being stuck down with tummy bugs. Crew directed us to Deck 12. Same condition. Crew then shrugged shoulders.

Cabin Review

Cabin Balcony

Good size and well equipped. Just unfortunate had problems with toilets, hot water and TV (which neve4 worked). Our safe did work, though.
