We'd been to Dubrovnik before and wanted to add Split and the rest of the Dalmation coast to my bucket list so we'd chosen to go on this trip a few months ago.
But we didn't expect to find the lingerings of covid to have such an impact on the embarkation and with the day to day running of the ship.
The TUI check in was terrible, it took 1 hour 45mins, then there was the famous Manchester Airport security. And we arrived at the same time as another 4 P & O flights so it was also chaos at Malta Border Control.
As we are seldom in our cabin we opted for a basic inside cabin in the Queen style beds.
However it was a cabin with a difference, it had two additional fold down beds. These proved a challenge when getting into and out of bed.
The cabin was clean and kept tidy by the steward. But don't expect your cover to be turned down anymore, and don't expect the chocolate to be left on your pillar anymore.
One of the best ports to visit.
