I should think not!!!! BP might have had many failings but looking after us in transit was generally not one of them. I stayed in some great hotels over the years. One I recall vividly was in Genoa, I think perhaps waiting for the Aviator. We waited 3 or 4 days due to bad weather and basically ate ourselves to a standstill, ordering all the most expensive steaks and seafood. By the time the ship arrived I could barely look at food I had stuffed myself so much in the past few days.
