L'Austral Cruise Review by isis1730
- Sail Date: March 2017
- Destination: Asia
But the captain, hotel manager and reception are very arrogant ,and not very skilled in handling guests. After a horrible arriving on 5.30am,after waiting 4 hours on gasstation in nowmans land of Batangas, the ship was still in dry dock and no-one was talking to us. We had drill on 11am, despite of having a seaday. .
Food was poor for a french ship. fish overcooked, everyday the same salad ,fruits, only 4 kind of cheese the whole 18 days.
Only one white wine, one red und sometimes a rose wine, always the same kind and winery never changing.
English speaking guests are second class, or third class, if there is a huge Tauck group overcrowding the ship.
After 30 cruises with the best ships of the other five star companies,this was a great disappointment.
the excursions were average and a lot could have don by yourselves . Seldom we had a shuttles to the town, which sometimes was dangerous running between containers through the harbour to find an exit.
