We went to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and our friends 40th anniversary expecting to have a wonderful time unfortunately it was anything but!

First mishap was we were given wrong dining times and refused to change it, despite written confirmation of the times we requested. Consiquently placed on top corner of dining room completely excluded from rest of the dining room.

Food we found very dissapointing and very poor selection, with virtually no english dishes at all.

Entertainment was very poor, relied mainly on audience participation. The weekend we were there, there was no entertainment at all in the theatre. Juggler magician and comedian very poor.

Despite numerous complaints to personnel in charge nobody seemed to care or wanted to do anything about it.

Cruise was described as a fun cruise but the fun was mostly for the numerous children aboard.

We found the service staff (i.e stewards/ waitresses etc)as opposed to managerial staff very helpful.

Why couldn't the managerial staff follow their example?

The only comfort we could find on this ship was the excellent sleeping accomodation and balcony.

Rooms were nice however. They were lovely,kept very clean and very looked after.

All in all a very dissapointing holiday, certainly not to be recommended.
