We chose this cruise as we had always wanted to see Gibraltar a d it's a place well worth a visit, however the cruise experience is pretty dire, we are regular cruisers and can honestly say this is the worst ever, we don't usually moan but this is a much needed warning.

The ship is very old and tired with what seems to be a shortage of staff, every day we had to queue to get into breakfast, the experience was then no better than going to McDonald's, bland food thrown onto the plate disgusting coffee, cold toast and no cutlery, service is no better than a cross Chanel ferry, we heard people moaning about the ship over and over again, prices are similar to the larger cruise lines now but the experience is like 1970's Butlins.

Balcony was old and tired and didn't get cleaned during the week we were on board, the bathroom smelt of sewerage had very little water pressure, we were in a junior suite and had to keep asking for toiletries, staff attentiveness was not good.
