Cruise R620 - the Canary Islands, etc.

Recommended Posts

We weren't advised that this was a music-themed cruise before departure. We wouldn't have booked it if we'd known.

The music was classical, or verging on classical. Some people may like this, but many don't.

For the second appearance of some artists, the theatre was only one third occupied.

The daytime lectures, 16 of them, were about Shakespeare. This was not good entertainment. It was moved out of the theatre to a smaller venue.

A comedian was flown in on the penultimate port to provide some light-hearted entertainment. The theatre was packed and the isles full. This should give a message to P & O.

The Headliners appeared only twice in the theatre. The best entertainment on board. The theatre was full on both occasions.

P & O are continually reducing the little items that were appreciated by the majority.

Silver service disappeared a while ago, but now other items have disappeared: -

Carafes of wines are now not available at the dinner;

The chocolatier event has gone from the dining room;

The gateaux afternoon does now not appear;

The chefs are not granted their appearance and our appreciation.

The vegetation menu remained unchanged for 12 days. On previous cruises it was changed every 5 or 6 days.

Do you think that you get a good deal by buying coffee and wine packages in advance of the cruise. Not true. You can get the same deals on board.

Who want to go to Morocco again? Not the majority I bet.

Very short bursts of communication from the bridge.

Maybe it's time to look at another cruise line!

I'm slightly confused. Did you go to Morocco on a Canaries cruise? In October on Arcadia there was a chocolate event and also a chefs parade.  Maybe it depends on the length of the cruise. 

The music themed cruises are usually advertised as such.
