We had not been on a cruise before but needed a break an embarking from Bristol sounded inviting. Not very impressed at all. The food was possibly the worst we have ever encountered anywhere! We learned just before we went that this was to be a Carry on themed cruise - that consisted of several B listed or worse celebrities- some whose fathers had been famous - they weren’t![there was one exception Juliet Mills who was charming). The men clearly thought it was beneath them to dress for dinner. Their. behaviour in the dining room was loud and boorish. On the whole the staff were charming and our cabin was fine. I was unlucky enough along with several others to contact a chest infection and the medical staff were excellent. The entertainment was very good - we didn’t go to any of the Carry on shows but people who did said they were appalling as apparently was the comedian.
