"Excellent MS: On the whole good, with potential "
For the general features of the ship can say that it is absolutely pleasant, the cabins are spotless and we felt not at all on the crossing from Tangier to Genoa concentrated one. Bathrooms were greater than in an Ibis budget.
What I had been looking forward but unfortunately had to miss it was the gym. This had to make a mosque place, which you certainly could have otherwise shared accommodate. Wireless would have been present, but was defective according to the Department during the entire crossing.
The quality of the food, at least in the a la carte restaurant was good. The waiter highly competent and diverse languages powerful.
The Cornet-Glace from the kiosk was a disaster. soft Biscuit not the point.
The cleanliness on the ship can best be described as follows; " Were is effortless "
Taken as a whole seemed at first glance, everything very clean, but were, for example in head joints most diverse, well visible very much covered with gray mold. A thorough cleaning was doing well. From the staff various brass parts were polished during the crossing, but not one took the time to do it right, because in all the corners and edges well dried-polishing agent was always not visible. More detail would bring a lot of care.
A somewhat infuriating point was the staff.
The more senior people have to say in fairness were first class, decent and competent. However, this circumstance was thus again made up for by the following incidents:
Sales staff at the kiosk:
I do not care if he is stressed out by the North African clientele, to me they are partly belonging to the alarm, but as a customer I expect to be treated kindly and not like it when once I had paid just once before running away, before taking care of the order.
(Here, however, still a little note in the evening an Italian waiter was still there each with two pairs of glasses, who seemed to be the complete opposite of the other, friendly, courteous, just as it should be)
In the cafeteria, worked a waitress who left behind the impression more stupid than to be a piece of bread. Thus, for example, my desire not taken into account for a particular cheese, although I put forward show him in English, French, Italian, and with his finger on it. The cheese was on the same plate as the other. If you do all the time a face, as if you were next time jump from the bridge that does not work contributes to the good impression.
Once again a huge praise needs to be made to the waiter and his superiors in the restaurant. Maximum attentive and competent the two.
With the punctuality there is such a thing. When booking, it was said that the ship would arrive at 00.30 clock. Effectively we ran umd 07.30 clock in Genoa. About the arrival time you was informed only the night before arrival, before I informed myself when I realized that this arrival was not realistic.
However, I would like to note here again that I can well imagine that there is a discrepancy between the actual timetable and the times given on the internet here.
The trip was relaxing and enjoyable the ship on the whole.
Anyone traveling from Tangiers must be of the large North African clientele which soon join, be aware of. This is partly getting used to.
The staff has a lot of potential but if the criticism to heart then takes comes the good.
I would go immediately back to the ship.
