Whilst the ship was ok, the staff were simply doing their job and no more, with the exception of the Steward and the Washy-Washy Ladies. Food was ok but no more. Bar staff seemed to not really care. Choice of drinks was ok, again, but no more, especially non-alcoholic versions of cocktails. The main desk staff were pretty hopeless and the WiFi non-existent. The worst thing really were the massively over-priced shore excursions. One trip to Athens included a disgusting 1970-style lunch and a wasted afternoon with a politically motivated courier under the guise of a Scenic coast. Shame because the cost and content of most of these excursions spoiled things. If you weren’t on a trip, they didn’t seem to care how to got about. The entire aim of the ship was really to extract dollars from your pocket. A real let down from what we were expecting and nowhere near as good as other cruise lines we have used. Would I recommend? Definitely not unless you like a truly American atmosphere and are happy to pay way over the odds for everything. Nuff said.

Just a rip off

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA 10074
Ok but a bit cramped. The toilet cubicle would not suit anyone of a ‘larger than average’ size. Needed to shuffle around the bed as it pretty much filled the room!
