We chose this cruise for the ports of call. To begin, they cancelled our overnight in Istanbul before departing. The time in the ports were cut short because the cruise excursions never left on time. There was always and hour or two hour delay to get off the ship due to the unorganized shore excursion personnel. It was a joke.

So instead of adding time to our excursions we were just short changed. In some places we were supposed to have 2 hours free time which was cut to 30 minutes. Not enough time to even get something to drink or shop. It happened on all the excursions we booked which were 4.

The ship was over crowded and the lines for buffet ridiculous. Never got to see the show because it was sold out from day one. Most specialty restaurants were also sold out because people make reservations and don’t show up. There App lets you make reservations but doesn’t let you cancel them. The guest services line says it all. Everyday there was a line of at least 20 people throughout the entire cruise. We had a few issues and received conflicting information from the staff. No one was on the same page.
