I would not waste your time worrying,Look into the review and to me it seems the only thing they have to complain about is the refit,break the review down,1There was always plenty to do on board and the port talks were interesting and informative.no problem there then, 2Breakfast was a bit of a bun fight unless you went very early,we opted for waiter service occasionally which was less stressful.Just go for waiter service the no problem there.3Embarkation went like clockwork as did disembarkation .no problem there then,4We had second sitting which gave us more time to get our glad rags on and have a couple of glasses of champagne .We had a table for six and met some interesting people. no problem there then,5We enjoyed ports of call,Madeira being our favourite.We tend to do our own thing rather than go on organised tours.Lisbon was very interesting and a change to be in a city as apposed to a holiday island. no problem there then,6.Our steward was a lovely pleasant young man as were the waiters.no problem there then,On. a positive note we did enjoy our trip.no problem there then.Go on your cruise with a positive attitude forget things you read and have a great time.
