Not a great selection, food not always hot, at a couple of meals I had nothing. Not at all my taste. I found more to eat on kids section

Bingo was ok, the ABBA quiz was very entertaining.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
We purchased a coffee package and had to go to deck 5 I think to get the iced coffees. The head bar staff was very rude on more than one occasion and made it very uncomfortable having to served by him. It got to the point of me choosing my time to visit this bar when he wasn’t there.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The overall ship was very clean.

The shuttle bus was very overpriced. We have sailed with many cruise lines and never paid so much. P&o have a free shuttle bus to zeebrugge

Amsterdam, Netherlands

4 out of 5
Nice that you didn’t have to get a shuttle bus. Nice being there overnight. First time we have been here. Will venture more inland next time

Hamburg, Germany
