Very disappointing

Sail Date: May 22, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

This was our tenth cruise, and by far and away the worst.

Most of the common toilets in the ship didn't flush and of the people that we went on the trip with, their cabin 's didn't work for most of the trip.  Our friends floor kept flooding and they couldn't make it stop and wouldn't change the cabin or fix the leak.  The entertainment, if you would call it that, was not fit for a Holiday Inn, which when there are 3 sea days built into 11 days, entertainment is important.

When problems came up and we went to speak with the Pursers office, they actually rolled their eyes!

When you add in the cost of the crusie with the cost of the flights, we spent in excess of $15,000 dollars just for the two, which is a great deal of money for way below standard returns.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
The only high point of the cruise!
Onboard Activities
Cabin / Stateroom
Venice, Italy
Istanbul, Turkey
What a hustle unless you want to buy a rug! The Grand Bizarre is like a flea market!
Mykonos, Greece
Fantastic place and people!
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Naples, Italy
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
We had very little time to see both since the ship was late getting to Livorno!
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
St Peter's Basilica is beyond words!
Toulon, France
The ship was 2 hours late which left very little time to do anything, but what we saw was amazing!
Barcelona, Spain
Exciting place and people. Maybe the cleanest big city we have seen!


Stay off this ship!
