  3. Vasco da Gama (Cruise & Maritime Voyages)
Chose to do a short cruise with friends, first day one bar and one beer bar with about 6 staff all up to cater for whole ship Very poor selection of drinks, no sweet white wine, poor choice of beer Most of the staff seemed like it was tooo much trouble to be pleasant and seemed like we were an inconvenience to them, probably came across three staff that seemed like they were happy in their job Entertainment team were ok, but for a two day cruise nothing done for first day, no sail away Food was good, service poor, many mistakes made with orders, restaurant staff seemed like trainees This was our seventh cruise with several cruise lines and this was the worst we have been on The only positive was the nightly dj who played good music Would I go on this cruise line again NOOO If it was my first cruise it probably be my last, which is such a pity as a lot of passengers were newbies doing a short cruise to see if they liked it Everyone we talked to were of the same opinion that this cruise was very poor in service and organisation

Very disappointing cruise

Chose to do a short cruise with friends, first day one bar and one beer bar with about 6 staff all up to cater for whole ship

Very poor selection of drinks, no sweet white wine, poor choice of beer

Most of the staff seemed like it was tooo much trouble to be pleasant and seemed like we were an inconvenience to them, probably came across three staff that seemed like they were happy in their job

Entertainment team were ok, but for a two day cruise nothing done for first day, no sail away

Food was good, service poor, many mistakes made with orders, restaurant staff seemed like trainees

This was our seventh cruise with several cruise lines and this was the worst we have been on

The only positive was the nightly dj who played good music

Would I go on this cruise line again NOOO

If it was my first cruise it probably be my last, which is such a pity as a lot of passengers were newbies doing a short cruise to see if they liked it

Everyone we talked to were of the same opinion that this cruise was very poor in service and organisation
