This sailing I had no brown water. A/C was working. Excellent quality of lecturers. Top class opera group Opera Barcarola. Wonderful violinist in Odyssey Trio. Enjoyed Maritime Memories lecturers also. Internet was working (unlimited minutes if you've sailed with them before) Odyssey Club - free laundry, free internet, bottled water in cabin, upgraded toiletries) Filipino staff continue to work tirelessly to make the cruise enjoyable. Had 7 days at sea and lots of activities. Wine tasting, watercolour art lessons, trivia night, passenger choir, yoga, Pilates, Zumba (all free!) Air fare and tipping included in cruise price. Excursions were included along with advice if touring independently in the port. Wine, beer or soft drinks included with dinner. Healthy food choices along with decadent desserts at tea time. Low single supplement. On disembarkation day, out of cabin by 8 am. But able to stay on the ship until 3 p.m. Docked at V&A Waterfront in Cape Town so it was ideal. Read Less

Excellent lecturers. Top class opera group Barcarola was just amazing. Enjoyed the violinist in the Odessey Trio her playing was magic. The service, food was very good, lots of choices. A great cruise for singles, or couples, good friends. Tours and tour guides, assistants were great. Lots to see and do. You can relax or listen to a lecture. Would recommend this size of vessel. More personal and the tour director Paul was fantastic. The staff on board were so helpful and took care of us. Dining room staff were very good. All the phlipinoes working for this cruise line deserve a big hug for their great personalities and general care of us. The ship was great, clean and easy to get around. I enjoyed the shore excursions and the tours provided. Read Less

This is the worst cruise of all our 50 plus cruises. The ship is old, has brown water flowing from the faucets, dirty dishes left out in social areas of the ship for days, air conditioning not working properly, etc. There are so many things that are wrong with this ship, I hesitate to even call it a cruise ship. We found out after we went to the Purser's office that this has been a car freighter. The Purser's office was horrible. When we would ask about something, they would just say, "so sorry about that," and hang up. You could tell they had said this a million times before and were used to hearing about all the things that were wrong with this "ship". We had the second nicest cabin on this ship and it was just ok once you take out the lack of air conditioning and brown water that come from the faucets in our room. The pool on this ship is a joke and so are the public rooms. Don't let the pictures fool you. The pictures I took compared to their pictures make you understand what a scam looks like. Even the crew told us that if we thought we were hot, it was unbearable down below where they were living. They said they could barely breathe and looked forward to coming up to work so they could breathe better. This is so sad. I am surprised someone has not died on this ship or maybe they have and they covered it up. We unfortunately booked the safari days before this cruise and were placed in non-airconditioned lodges that were very basic and not up to the standards we had been promised. The hotel at the end of the trip in Colombo, Sri Lanka was nice and we were thankful to be some where safe and clean for the last few days of trip. We did not leave the hotel to do any of the excursions with the company because of our horrible experience with this company prior to arriving in Colombo. It is too bad that the company that owns this ship think that by charging the money they charge, new people to their line, like us, will pay it thinking they are going to have a great experience. I have waited almost a year to post this review thinking that I might feel different or better about the time and money we spend with this company for this vacation. We can never get our time back and it gave us a valuable lesson to stay away from this company and any others like this. We did dispute what we were charged by this company and received one third of our money back after we submitted pictures of what we endured while on this vessel. The company knows they are selling a bad bag of tricks and endangering people's lives on this vessel. DON'T go and waste your time and money like we did. I am posting this in hopes of saving those of you that read reviews as you do your homework before you book a cruise. I am been cruising since 1980 and have cruised every year at least on one cruise, many years on more than one and this is by far the worst cruise ship I have ever cruised on. I am glad we made it out alive and returned home without permanent damage. Read Less
