Default Re: what was your worst cruise?

Maasdam, Holland America 12/11/04.

We lost an engine and pulled in extremely late at most ports. We finally got to St. Thomas in the afternoon, and were anchord in the outer anchorage. By the time we could get a tender ashore, it was already after 3:00pm which precluded our planned visit to Coral World.

The ship, it seemed, was not fully booked. Holland America reduced the price tremendously (we couldn't change to the new low price because it was passed the allowed time for changing without a $50 surcharge.)

The ship sailed out of Norfolk. The newly booked passengers (who paid so little) were a sorry lot. OK, call me a snob, but when somebody yells out to the string quartet, "Yeoow, I'm a hillbilly. Let's hear some good fiddlin'," I've had it. Also, when someone is tattooed from neck to ankle (female) that is also too much.
