Could have been better BETTER

A 2 week cruise to the Med starting 2nd May – Easy to check in thanks to our loyalty status and the free welcome hospitality was enjoyable
For once we were able to make use of our balcony – even sitting on it enjoying the sunshine in Southampton.
Whilst enjoying the welcome hospitality we were asked if we would like to dine in Sindhu that evening for half price – hard to refuse !
We had already pre booked 2 other dates to dine there and one of them coincided with a new taster menu but the Restaurant Manager was able to fit us in on another day.
Whilst the dining room waiters and the wine waiter in Club Dining were very friendly and attentive the food has lost that Wow factor about it and it was very noticeable that there were a great deal of empty places nightly as people seemed to go to the Horizon Grill / Buffet instead.
The food was rather bland and our experiences in Sindhu were excellent.
The Entertainment was of a reasonably high standard and our cruise was made by the fact that the Band Caravan whom we hadn’t seen since Aug ’08 were on the cruise and performed most nights mainly in the Crows Nest – only the last day was in Champions which is small and becomes crowded.
The ships Orchestra under the leadership of Adrian Cross played some wonderful Big Band and Jazz tunes in the Crows Nest near the end of the cruise on a couple of days and they were wonderful.
It was brilliant to be at sea and sunshine once again, despite all the horrendous form filling, PCR tests, etc.… Read more
