Marina Cruise Review by Dr.P
- Sail Date: September 2018
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Verandah Stateroom
The buffet restaurant was always overcrowded and offered limited selection
Food quality was also poor:
Soggy pastries,over cooked sausages, strange tasting scrambled eggs, soggy weird tasting French fries.
At lunch time the buffet was the only option
The main dining room food quality lacked imagination and was of average quality at best. Little emphasis on providing regional dishes or specialities.
Each of the specialty restaurants was pretentious . While having some good dishes ( veal chop in Toscana, lamb in Jacques and red ginger) the French onion soup was watery , pasta tasteless ,crepe Suzette rubbery and bitter and pastries soggy . EXTREMELY. DISAPPOINTING!!
The cabins were nice with a shower and separate bath,
Shore excursions were well organized and had some great guides.However several were spoilt by unfit elderly travelers ignoring fitness recommendations for the tours by selecting strenuous walking trips . Only to complain and hold up the whole group as soon as any walking was required
Entertainment was on the poor side.
Boarding in Stockholm was time consuming but disembarking in Copenhagen efficient
Staff varied considerably in performance.
Some were very friendly helpful and attentive. Others down rite rude
Last Crystal cruise was superior in every aspect. I cannot imagine how Marina has a high culinary rating!!!!!
