Myself , My Partner & My Parents Done a Back to Back 8 day cruise on 22nd April 2018. We arrived at Southampton and joined the ship very easily our rooms where ready and all our details where checked very well.
We had a easy Drinks package and was surprised of the lack of choice on this package included however I did include the drink my partner mainly drank that was until half way through the cruise and they changed what we where allowed so our drinks package was a waste of time after this
Food was always cold in the buffet restaurant no matter where time we actually went to eat, we changed our eating time over the cruise but this didn’t matter , at the al la carte restaurant the menu was limited and portions very small
Entertainment was not the Best compared to other cruises it was very amateur and some of the show themes just didn’t make any sense.
The only think that made this cruise enjoyable was the staff , they are one of the best we have experienced and they can’t do enough for you, always smiling and asking are we ok and telling us to enjoy our day,
Cabin was really good , clean , spacious , but balcony was very small.
Hamburg is very difficult to get to if you don’t book transfers with the cruise line. It took us 1hr each way and had to get a number of buses and trains. If we went again we would book transfers from the terminal or get a taxi.
However Hamburg Centre is lovely , loads of shops and little bars to have a drink at or a bite to eat.
