From Buenos Aires to Savona

Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Buenos Aires
My wife and I had a very enjoyable cruise. The stateroom had a balcony and was spotless The food was excellent and was '5 star' quality although I would have preferred a better choice of cereals for breakfast.

The staff were most efficient, and helpful as well as being very friendly. We would like to mention in particular our Indonesian waiter in the Sinfonia restaurant, Daniel, a Brazilian waiter in the bar and Mozart, another lovely Brazilian a most gifted and entertaining member of the entertainment group.

The evening shows in the theatre were very good on some nights.

On a negative side, we really felt quite upset at the behavior of some of the passengers who rushed and pushed to get first at every opportunity. We also felt angry at the practice of a number who took over seats in the theatre and held them for their late arriving friends. We remember seeing a whole row of the best seats booked by a group of Germans. The Germans were the main culprits, but some More Italians also abused the system. We reported this , but nothing was done about it.

As a small group of English speaking passengers, we travelled with a larger group of German speaking passengers on a tour in Salvador de Bahia. However, although the tour was meant to be in two languages,the German born guide spoke mostly in German. He only spoke in English when we asked him to translate what he had said in German. Less

We had a very clean stateroom with a balcony. However, it was smaller than some which we have occupied in the past. The bathroom as quite small. I should imagine that a person of larger stature would have found it difficult to use the toilet!
