Very disappointed by this cruise - it started badly by having us wait for over an hour in a shed in Venice whilst they scanned baggage, and got progressively worse.
The cabin was very basic. No fripperies here, plus the fridge was stocked with expensive miniatures and peanuts.
Meals were generally served lukewarm and the waiting staff untrained and disinterested. You can't take alcohol on board without being charged corkage. Drinks are very expensive plus they add 15% to each drink as a gratuity - thanks NCL !
You get charged $12 each per day for service. They sell you Bingo, Art Sales, Emeralds, Photos by the score, Tours. and there's a shop full of stuff 200% over on-shore prices. I hated it and couldn't wait to get off, it's back to P & O next time.

Food: Mediocre quality usually served lukewarm and with long waits between courses. In the buffet you'd have to queue to get a table.

Rooms: Tiny and basic with an old fashioned tv

Entretainment: Entertainment was hit and miss, but generally miss

Ports: Corfu and Mykinos were great, as was Olympia.

We previously cruised with P & O (Azurra) and it was far superior to this load of mercenary rubbish
