It went wrong from the start. Taxi driver had us down for Manchester T1 instead of T2 . Luckily i put him straight.

When we arrived in Amsterdam and after a long wait because of the luggage belt not working, we were ushered into a holding aread and told to wait until other flghts arrived. That took all of 2 hours. Eventuall we were show to a coach and told we were to being transported to a nice park with windmills as the boat was not due into Arnhem (not Amsterdam) for another few hours.We were in the Park area for 2 hours in scorching 85F+ heat. When the coach did leave the drive had no idea where the dock was for the boat. But eventuall we got there just as the boat arrived which had taken well over an hour. Passengers who were not flyers were already there and had been waiting with toilet facilities. Our guie asked us to hand in pre medical questionnaires. We did but others did not have them. To my knowlege they were never presented to reception.

Our cabin was on the lower deck with no acess to lifts for disabled passengers - which has always been a facility on other cruises. The cabin was small than expeced and over furnished. There was no need for a pouffe. Nor for a easy chair which resrtricted movement between the bed and the dresser. And totall obscured the long mirror. After asking for it to be removed i was told that housekeeping saidthere was nowhere t to put it. But when i said i would move to the corridor and left a note on it stating that it - it disappeared.

Cabin Review

very poor small and cramped with useles furniture such as bouffee and easy chair and no lift
