Nice Trip. What No Cups? by Whatley, Wigan

I've just come off Ocean Countress cruise to British Isles today and we had a really good time. I cannot agree with the comment about the meat being tough though, ours wasn't, and Jo Jo Joseph was not the best show on the trip but Ryan Morgan who came on at Cobh for us also, was absolutely superb and I even got chance to tell him, he was a lovely guy. The sea was very choppy for nearly three days and it wasn't possible to visit a couple of the places in Ireland but the staff of Ocean Countess are very safety conscious and people appreciated this. The restaurant staff were superb especially Myo, Enil, Franco and Artur. The cruise director is superb, Richard and we hope to see them all on Discovery.

Does anyone know why the ocean countess is being replaced by the discovery? i was surprised because not too long ago ocean countess was being advertised on new avonmouth sailings then suddenly it was the discovery. where is the ship going & will the name change? really liked that ship & hope marco polo doesn't go as well.

The cup situation was exactly the same when we sailed on this ship in April. We could be stood there for over ten minutes before they brought more cups out. Not good enough on a cruise.

I also was on this trip but started a day early with the welcome aboard night so we were already on board , we thought everything about the trip was great except again to do with cups some were dirty also i picked up a fruit dish & the one underneath it was dirty ..they need to check all the pots / cutlery etc before putiing them out as it lets down the ship ..

I would agree with everything you say but the food must have gone downhill since we were in norway on her in june . it was fabulous then . as you say the boys and girls aboard are fantastic , great kids .yes the ship is old now but kept well for age of itwe were in aldasness and were asore and the crew were in a workboat chipping and painting round the waterline to keep her smart . the only gripe i had was the condition of the lifeboats which doubled as ferrys when were at anchor . felt a bit like abandoning ship getting into them , banging heads and stubbing toes ,i wouldnt really have complained till i saw a new liner in beside us and they dropped huge catamarans like tour buses.. a door opened on the side of the liner and the passengers stepped on , rows of plush seats , about 150 to a boat . we had scaffold battens to sit on lol.still we got ashore ok .this was our first cruise and it certainly has me hooked . going to do it again .....
