Nice Ship.......pity about the rest..........

Sail Date: December 2010
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Genoa
NOT SO GOOD POINTS... Having already cruised 12 times before this cruise this was by far the worst.....Reception staff were very abrupt......Gangway staff I think were frightened to Smile and unhelpful.... not much information on the daily news letter...Food was very average and not a lot of choice....but most of all the Drinks VERY...VERY expensive..(example..2 small Heineken with the 15% service charge was 8.97 euro.)

This is the first ship we have cruised on where we had to pay for water lunch time and evening meal in the restaurant. The bottled water was 2.07euro for a 100CL size. Could not even get a cup of coffee or tea during the day without paying. Basically it was money grab all the time..

We only used the Buffet to eat once but that was like a free for all...walking around with your tray trying to find somewhere to sit...

On the day of disembarkation we had to be out of the cabin by 8am, ok fair enough but we were taken to the airport and arrived More at 12.15pm although our flight was not until nearly 7pm....

BETTER POINTS......Our waiters for lunch and evening meal were mostly very good...The drinks waiters in the various bars were very good and polite...

The Ship was very very good..clean and immaculate.....Our Balcony cabin was excellent.. The evening shows were also very good and different... Less

We had a balcony cabin and I must say it was really good and no complaints..
