So disappointing.  We planned for quite awhile for this trip, only to be held hostage on this ship for almost two weeks!  The captain elected not to sail across the Engish Channel due to bad weather.  However, the other ships in port sailed.  30 passengers stranded in France without so much as a dock agent to inform them.  (they arrived via ferry) Because we left late, we missed our ports.  What started as a 14 day cruise with ports in France, Spain, Portugal, the Azores and Bermuda, turned into only two ports...Lisbon and Bermuda and the rest of the time on the ship with 3000 other disgruntled passengers.  Several reprimands from the captain via PA system that people should not be posting negative things on the internet and that the big concern was to find somewhere that we could get the fuel that we needed to cross the Atlantic Ocean!  I really expected the String Quartet on board to be playing as we went down!  We have cruised on several different cruise lines before and always had the best of times.Sad
