Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: the Middle East

The boat is new so everything is clean and well maintained, it is large and very little frequented, it has a large gym, many shops and the service of the tankers in the bars is very good. There are no burdens and at no time do you feel they are on top of you to sell you anything and for you to consume their products.

All catering services are buffet style, except for a la carte restaurants. There are 3 types of options for lunch and dinner: pure and hard buffet, which includes water, wine and beer soda but limiting the hours of these drinks less water, another option is a la carte paying only drinks and with reservation, and Letter with reservation in which all food and drink is paid, thanks to this you have options to avoid the buffet because there the food is repeated day after day.

Bathrobes are left in all cabins and pool towels are collected and deposited there without controls. Automatic laundry facilities and free ironing facilities are also available on all cabin floors. Well, perhaps the worst is the language, this company is dedicated to the German public, so all the information, restaurant menus, food posters, absolutely everything is in German. , with English they attend you without problem, not even we learned of the emergency drill, because they also announced it in German.

The cabins are very small but with the bathroom and shower, larger than other companies. The waiters at the buffet, they pass everything, they avoid you from having to attend you, you have to ask them to clean the table of those who ate before to be able to eat, the cutlery and napkins are taken from a dispenser that is in each table, and the glasses you are looking for life if you are not the first one who has sat at that table, the coffee that is served only at the table comes to you when you have finished breakfast, the food is very repetitive every day the same and for the tastes from the German public, very strong flavors a lot of salt and very little elaborated, basically potingues inedible meats and fish of low quality and undercooked, past fruits, desserts like colorful porridge and rice pegotacos everywhere, with what is left over in the morning They mix it with other things and prepare dinners. In the payment all correct although with little variety. The animation does not exist, zero, there is not, removing 2 or 3 hours of music in the pool at night.

And the schedules cannot be combined with our customs, breakfasts from 6 to 8 lunches from 11 to 1 and dinners from 6 to 8, although if you go to dinner at 7:30 a.m. they are already taking everything away. The room service leaves much to be desired, the bathroom was practically not cleaned throughout the week and the room had 2 days that did not enter despite having the sign for it hanging on the door. The theater shows, which is physically very rare and poorly designed because nothing is seen since 80% of the seats are in German, and without content except for the group of ballet artists and singers that are seen trying to give everything They can, getting to make good presentations. There is another small place where they also perform but where you have to pay 10 euros. The organization of the ship is a real maze, it costs 3 days or so to locate you.
