I cruised on her in early June although the ship was not to my tastes it’s great for young families so I gave her four stars. I am surprised that having given most of the facilities a high score that the simple fact that you could not take alcohol onboard was sufficient to take the overall score down to one star.

Hi Spartan, .........I can understand fairly high individual scores but a low overall rating which we see sometimes on these pages, 'cos the sum of the specified parts don't neccessarily add up to a reviewer's overall experience - if they did there'd be no need to click on an overall rating, the computer could do the maths. .......Poor on-board value, over-crowded pushing&shoving, and general atmosphere were part of this reviewer's experience. And yes, the cruise line's mistrust of clients comes into it. ..........Regards, Chris.

Chris I have defended many peoples overall score being lower in the past but normally they have stated their reasons. Even Vernon on reflection has agreed that perhaps the mark was lower than it should have been.
