Balmoral Cruise Review by Caroline27

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2019
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Junior Suite

Restaurant and staff in outside bar are offish and service for drinks slow

Restaurant staff. You catch their eye and they immediately walk away Yet rush you when eating to Move you on as quickly as they can

Food

School dinners from the 50’s only worse

We are in Orkney and Shetlands the ultimate fishing area in U K yet a huge bowl of crab sticks on buffet

Kipper for breakfast. Boil in the bag with raw onion on top

Milk not fresh UHT

Sunday lunch. Roast pork yet not a pig in sight. We are in the land of some of the best beef and lamb in the world

We paid 3k for 5 days The cabin and cabin staff perfect. Such a shame that the food and service in restaurants did not match

The restaurant staff and bar staff in the outside bar was slow if you ordered drinks

Food in restaurants with additional costs was acceptable but same menu every night

Balcony filthy. Old ash tray on balcony from last visitors Recliners dirty

We have been on 9 cruises Queen Mary. Star Clippers. Windstar
