Having just completed a cruise to the western Med I really feel guests on "Aqua Class" get a raw deal. Not only do we have to eat in the awful "BLU" restaurant who seem to overcook everything to destruction, but we have to listen to beds being dragged about from the early hours on that blasted canopy that overhangs the verandah. Overall the worst cabin and the worst food we have ever had on any cruise line!!!! It was only when we moved to "Moonlight Sonata" that the food improved to an acceptable level. There was also the issue of not being able to find sunbeds in the sun because of lots of space being taken up by the ponsy lawn which hardly anybody used considering how many people were on board. So no sun on the verandah because of the enormous overhang, no sun on the sundeck because many of the beds were in shade, rubbish food in BLU an overall wonderful cruise!!! The entertainment was of a high standard unless you wanted to dance, the only dance floor, fit to be called a dance floor was hardly ever used and the music barely audible except when a band was playing, which was rare, in this location. No one seemed able to adjust the volume to an acceptable level because it had been recorded badly on an iPod it was either too quiet to hear the beat or deafening. The only redeeming factor was the crew who were all very nice.
