Reviewed By: on
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.

What a load of rubbish, ignore this 'review'. Evidently the poster did not do any research beforehand.

The reviewer has every right to comment on how he found his cruise, he does not have to ask your permission or only post reviews that you and other people like you agree with.

As we all have a right to comment, I found Blu on of the best restaurants at sea. If we had had any problem with the food, an alternative was quickly offered. Eclipse has 417 reviews on here, 15 are one star. In the end you have to take the average, so Eclipse would probally rate 4 star.

The alternatives were also overcooked or salads wilted!

Sorry have to agree with Brown - we were Aqua class and found Blu very dull and totally over estimated...food was better in the MDR...would not bother with upgrade to Aqua again as all we seemed to get extra were some scented sticks in our cabin and a few extra holes in the shower system.

You most certainly don't just take an 'average'. You value every customer's experience, and this was clearly a bad one. That, though, is beside the point. You wrote ''ignore this review'' which was arrogant and thick-headed.

Personally I would throw Gordon Ramsey overboard, rude and arogant man. Tried one of MPW restaurants, awful food, and the next table to us agreed. Gary Rhodes restarant is the only one I would re-visit.

He's going on holiday not sitting an exam! From where do you get the arrogance to tell other people to ignore someone else's opinion? The only thing to ignore are ill considered and rude comments. Step forward Smilth!
