This was our first cruise ever. We planned it for over a year. Our first impression was a 5+ hour wait to emabark and have a room. Our room was not clean and ready when we arrived. It was also on the quarantine deck so we had to be rearranged.
The boat looked outdated (but nothing to compare it to, until other seasoned cruisers affirmed this)
The ports and excursions were horribly planned and not a single one was on time. We had 1.5 hours to see Blarney Castle because of delays.
