Value for money
Having booked my cruise with IGLU and parted with a larger than i would have expected deposit, going to a lot of effort to make a special request to my company for holiday , i am now told that for no good reason my holiday is cancelled. I now have to Fight to get my deposit back ! Don't do business with IGLU and don't be sucked in by their initial effort to gain your custom! as once they have your deposit all decency seems to evaporate, and you get treated with complete contempt ! Thanks for nothing but a lot of grief and heartache ! Don't touch this company with a barge pole unless you want to be treated as I have !

just spent 12 days on the Quantum of the Seas. it is a lovey ship with lots to do when you are at see. However because the ship is so large the ports it can get into are some time disappointing they some times use container ports. this means you have a long coach drive to get to your shore visits. Our cabin staff were excellent so were the restaurant waiters. the food was average and some times cold. But be warned on the last day we were charged 50$ for two pool towels they said we did not take back. yes 50$ who would believe it, it can be a rip off ship if you are not careful.

Iglu organised our whole trip including our stays in China. The trip went very well and all our hotels/ connections/ tours went very well. The itinary of the ship to Japan was truly a wonderful cultural experience. We choose the ship for its itinary. We have sailed before with RC and found the standard on this vessel slipped below our expectations/ previous experience. We believe the large number of passengers makes it difficult for them to deliver a 5 star service. The main problems were poor organisation (2.5hr to board the ship) poor service in the main restaurant and bars. The Buffett restaurant was very very busy and lots of people said they had not been able to get a table. We declined to try it a second time after a very poor experience at lunch on the first day. The ship has lots of activities and I can see how it is very good for families. Would I go on this ship again, only if it had another fab itinary certainly would not choose it for the standard/ mex item art.
