Arvia, Western Mediterranean and Atlantic

This cruise fitted our itinerary, but on reflection the ship was just too big. With dining mainly at the aft end and entertainments at the front the amount of walking was huge. Food was OK but not up to the standard expected. Drinks prices are OK but drinks packages are way too expensive. Shore excursions were good but expensive, if you could get on them, many of the popular ones were sold out 2 weeks before departure ! The buffet was chaotic so only used when all else failed. Booking of dining options was complex with the online app and many older travellers took the view that they would just stand at the restaurant entrance until the staff let them in. Back to Fred Olsen next time.
