Like some other posts, it seems the star rating is inversely related to the text of the review.
Sorry you had such a bad experience.
Agree w/Jon and Pinkie. I don't get the rating to review relationship. Based on the commentary provided, I am not sure if English is the primary language of the author and perhaps they did not understand the rating scale.
Just a note about the "poverty is depressing" comment. Poverty is distressing but it is real. Coming face to face with it can be quite disturbing to people who have no experience with it. It should serve as a reality check that not everyone in this world enjoys the same quality of life and standard of living. Keep in mind that those are relative. While I may not be able to imagine living in the same conditions, I respect that it is exactly how some people live quite happily. I don't project my own beliefs and customs onto others and judge my surroundings to be depressing. When possible, I try getting to know a couple of the locals and ask about their lives. That gives more detail to what I see around me.
It is important to do a bit of research into the area(s) one is cruising before deciding on an itinerary. If second or third world surroundings is likely to be depressing, maybe it is better to pick another voyage.
