Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View

We picked this cruise based an assumed canary good weather

Weather better in UK

The ship rather tired and probably the worst quality ship we have been on out of 5 travelled

Be reluctant to use RCI again unless it’s a newer ship

However staff as on all cruises fantastic

Entertaining professional shows better than NCL apart from the ones laid on by the RCI guys which were quite awful equally as bad as NCL

Food generally good and you can get some thing you like

We had deluxe drinks package which as the measures were very small you would need 2 at a time so that the alcohol could be tasted but you are not allowed to do that unlike NCL

The ship passengers were largely retired

or nearing retirement unlike NCL

Ports of call strange as went to Gran Canaria on Sunday and it was all shut

Why did RCI land on Sunday!!
