"navigating a holiday"

I booked this trip at the last minute as Trafalgar Tours cancelled on us 4 days before we left Australia. I was happy with the price and the dates fitted in the gap I had to fill. To be honest, I didnt expect much, not sure why, but had no great expectations. But I was pleasantly surprised. Firstly, checkin was really easy as we were one of the first ones there. The balcony room was nice and functional. Every thing we needed. All the staff we came across, were super friendly and efficient.( the wine waiter was still learning the ropes but thats O.K) I loved the covered promenade and prom. cafe. As we are huge consumers of tea and coffee, this facility ( all included) was a godsend.This cafe also filled in when we missed lunch or breakfast. This promenade area was great for evening strolls if you're not into the shows and bar scene. Loved the little theatre for movies. I was there every day. Loved the ice-skating, but it was only available the last 2 days? Would have loved a spa treatment, but the price was pretty high. Would have loved some time in the gym, but found the gym junkies and almost professional like zeal of other guests too intimidating. Some small points that were abit annoying. I would like to have been told which ports were right in the middle of the towns. I paid for excursions only to find the ship pull right into the middle of the city. I tried many times to talk to staff about this but the lines were prohibative.My remote for the TV did not work properly either. The food in the main dining room was very average. Nice but just average. The portions were smallish ( which is O.K) but mainly ungarnished. The menu was set out poorly and difficult to decifer and there wasnt much variety. I had the same thing 3 nights out of 7. room service food below average. The windjammer was the usual buffet fare. One of the excusions ( Treasures of Messina ) was appaling. What treasures? I enjoyed only one translation of all announcements ( italian). a MSC cruise that I had previously been on translated every announcement 6 times. Really tedious! I enjoyed the gay men in the adults only pool. What a laugh watching the people stare while these gentlemen frolicked. I enjoyed telling off an english woman who claimed I was on her deckchair. She was on another one and the one I sat on was totally empty. SHE MOVED. I enjoyed the cruise on the whole and would recommend it to everyone. Wouldnt want a smaller ship as there would have to be less variety of activities. Up grade the food abit and its pretty perfect.
