  3. Vasco da Gama (Cruise & Maritime Voyages)
We went on the cruise to celebrate the Union of of my daughter and her partner. During the life boat drill one staff member verbally stated she didn’t want to demonstrate, and after being told she still didn’t demonstrate the procedure for entering the water. We then went to dinner and was refused entry for wearing dressed shorts. Getting changed I gained entry only to see another two patrons entering wearing shorts. The food was eatable but I expected better, and my wife is not a chef, but her best meals were better than what I got served on the ship. To further add I was drinking iCanadian Club in the Ocean Bar and moved with the family in tow to Lido Bar where I again asked for Canadian Club only to be told they run out. I asked them nicely to get a bottle only to be told there’s none onboard, I explained I was drinking it downstairs and they still refused, lazy. I then when back to the ocean bar and Charlie bar who had Canadian Club. I wanted to have a whinge so I went to service desk only to be told they only sell soft drink, this is my experience and I’ve been on the ship one day

Somewhat lacking
