Hello. The over all cruise was good. However we where unaware that there would be so many non English speaking people.  I'm not a prejudice person but I found the high number of rude , loud, arrogant people uncomfortable. We found that when announcements where made the English version was about 3 sentences and the Polish version was about 3 chapters.  I realize that the majority of the cruises that we take are primarily English speaking and other languages might feel the way we did with this cruise. However it would have been nice to know ahead of time so we could have made a discussion to take the cruise or not. If you are having a Gay cruise or a nude cruise you make people awear. 

What i guess I'm saying is the the shoe was on the other foot this time and we where not happy about it  which I guess is our problem but we where interested in doing a South America cruise but have now lost all interest in doing it .

As I said I don't consider myself prejudice but I may have come across that was but we found it uncomfortable day after day. I hope this has been helpful

Service and Staff

head waiter was excellent however the assistant wasn't always as attentive because she would get into confersations in Polish with other passengers and time would pass leaving the waiter to do her work as well

Attendant was ok but very little interaction and several times we had to ask for soap. Small issue . However the room was not vacuumed often or mirror cleaned. Also we had 5 life jackets and all the linen for 5 under the bed which all cut down on storage space. When we asked if we could get rid of 3 life jackets we where told no
