Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: the Mediterranean

Excursions. Unique and well orchestrated shore trips. However, the captain continually lied regarding the reasons for skipping ports and cruising at only 5 knots. Crete maritine authority nearly denied the ship permission to leave Chania port without a seaworthy test. Had to limp to Athens. Ship has NO activities on sea days other than a couple of lectures and bridge (which we don't play), snooker (which we also do not play) and heavy drinking. Clients are VERY old and occupy all the loungers all day. Food is marginally OK, and the Bridge Club (about 50 people) gets to start dinner between 6 and 6:30 with seating on one side of the dining room putting the rest of us in the middle with no windows. This all forces the rest of us to start dinner at 7 PM. The ship is too "clubby", reserving large areas (the observation lounge for one) for the bridge group. The bed was reported to be very comfortable, but the pillows were too hard.
