Summary We like Star Flyer but there are many faults that need to be addressed before we chose to sail with them again. Ports of call, experience of the CD and poor information could and should be perfect after 20 years but are not Hotel Info We booked the Phoenicia independently which is a wonderful place and we could see the ship from our window Ship Info Small tall ship with an intimate atmosphere. One sitting evening meal which suited us. Disappointed that a couple of promo groups wore beach wear to dinner. The staff should have done something about this but didn't. Activities There were too few opportunities to use the array of water sports equipment. Service Liked the waiting staff who were mainly Indonesian, Go-an and Filipino. Port & Shore Excursions Not good. Many complained about the overpriced excursions which comprised of sitting on a bus for the morning. The cruise was rescheduled a week before we boarded to avoid Tunisia and we were not informed. We visited 3 ports in Sicily but had no information or maps and so this made life very difficult. The cruise director was ill informed and had no knowledge of any ports at all. The first port of call was even called a "hole" by the Captain - why take us there? Travel To Port of Embarkation We flew in from LHR 2 days beforehand and enjoyed our stay. we walked from the hotel to the ship which was 10 minutes Stateroom A little bit worn and in need of a refit.We had a good choice of cabin. The TV was irritating as it only had 1 intermittent channel of English which flickered, and 3 promo video's. Food We enjoyed the food but were not excited by it> Did not like the rubbery lobster. Entertainment The evenings were fun and hosted by the crew and passengers. Disembarkation Very good - off the ship and at the Gare within 1/2 an hour Read Less
