Awesome Cruise: Marina Cruise Review by sparklerod

Destination: South Pacific
The ships dining was More superb but we found Red Ginger was not as good as the first cruise, there was way too much sauce on the entree. And Toscana was very salty. Talking to fellow passengers they all felt the same.
There is no smoking in the cabins but I know that someone close to us was smoking either in the cabin or on the veranda. I wondered how much they paid their room steward to keep a closed mouth.
Embarkation was a nightmare, for some reason we were able to board as visitors while the previous cruise passengers were still onboard. It was crazy! However, disembarkation was much better.
We made our own tour arrangements off ship, outside the port for a fraction of the cost of the cruise. Since our departing flight was not until late in the evening for the same price as the cruises transfers we booked a private day tour and they even took us to the airport with our luggage.
We also liked the fact that we could bring liquor, beer and wine onboard to enjoy in our cabin. Less
Cabin review: B18130 Verandah Stateroom
We were towards the back, in between the middle. Very quiet as other cabins closer to middle seemed noisy due to engines. Nice sized balcony, great bath tub for bathing. Bed was comfortable and the room temperature was perfect. Plenty of hangers and closet space and drawers. There were times however that the room had a damp smell, we could not figure out where it was coming from. Some of the public areas had the slight odor as well.Read All Verandah Stateroom (B1) Reviews >>
