My wife, Jeri, and I really thought the cruise was outstanding. It was a very memorable experience and one that did not disappoint our expectations. There were many, many plusses, but a couple of negatives.
- The crew of the Tir was outstanding, especially Alina, our Program Director. She was extremely thoughtful and concerned for all of us and completely dedicated to our pleasure and safety.
- We had to change ships to the Vali because of the high water and a low bridge. The switch was done flawlessly. Unfortunately, the crew of the Vali did not seem to be as professional as the crew of the Tir. The ships were identical, but the crews were noticeably different. Their attitudes may have been a reflection of the leadership OR the attitudes of some of the crew may have been affected because their plans were disrupted due to the ship change that sent them back to where they started. Some said they had friends or family at the original destination.
