Spirit of Discovery, Western Mediterranean and Atlantic


First post-pandemic cruise, which caused some changes. Significant number of passengers openly flouted on-board requirements - even after positive cases of covid were confirmed on board. Italy refused us landing so alternatives were substituted at very short notice with reasonable success. Some ports were not given the customary shuttle service as there are minimum limits to when this occurs - some were well above this but with no provision. Sometimes the provided shuttles were patchy in service with missing runs which incurred waits at a rainy street corner for an hour or so.
The ship itself was up to previous standards of service and cleanliness except the food which was often limited choice and extremely bland - almost as if they were catering to a care home winter sun cruise.
We didn't let these problems spoil our experience, but they certainly did not enhance our first holiday for two years. Especially as we had been through a 'saga' of cancellations and re-bookings etc to get here.
