Wonderful (in parts)
Graham Luck | September 29, 2017 | P&O Cruises | Ventura
Embarkation went very smoothly with little delay. Ventura itself was exactly as promised and the ports-of-call were most enjoyable, although we went on only one organised excursion which was perfectly organised and which I would heartily recommend for those not of a nervous disposition (Mountains and Maquis) as the roads in Corsica good and adequately paved around the immediate areas of large towns.
The reception staff were most helpful and our stewardess was most helpful and attentive.
However, the trip was spoiled to a large measure by the new “experimental” relaying of meals which created extreme delays in service; furthermore, the waiters and station managers were almost invariably surly to the point of rudeness – so much so that we ate in the Cinnamon restaurant only three times(we were obliged to use this restaurant for the first three evenings) and only a few times more in Saffron, mainly because the slow service meant missing the shows; those we saw were excellent.
Breakfasts, lunches and several evening meals were taken in the buffet restaurants which were clean but a little utilitarian, but the staff were much more professional and helpful.
Next year we shall go back to Royal Caribbean Cruises.
Be prepared to manage your expectations.
