  • "very pleasant "

    A beautiful new shipand the voyageis like holiday. There I found it very pleasant, and there is nothing that this feeling would have seriously tarnished. Nevertheless, two points are named, who have not shown optimal: 1 Why did the first class dormitory closed, even though I have booked it there? I do not understand. Even in the off season but there could easily be opened if there is paying passengers, right? 2 After leaving the ship, there was an incredible traffic chaos, and there's ruthlessness and danger, not least because of the " stronger, " trucks. Could not regulate the traffic to leave the port? A little civilization would do well here!
