Dissappointment after Dissappointment
The room was another failure. There are two 14 inch in diameter and three five inch diameter cut-outs in the floor covered by carpet at the foot of the bed. They are about an inch deep and make getting around the room very More difficult especially if the seas are rough. The rest of the open floor area seemed to be buckled up and was just terrible. The front office said boat was full and they were sorry we didn't like the room but there was nothing to be done for it. This should be a broom closet not a stateroom. The banging of the movable panels from the wind on the balcony were so bad that I jammed folded paper between them to stop the banging at night. There was no fix for the howling of the wind on the balcony glass door, however.
The room attendants and most of the staff were very courteous and helpful but I have a problem when the crew, on a limited-time meal break, are dropped in the middle of cruisers who are in no hurry. Both sides get annoyed. Less
Cabin review: VC5144 Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
VC #5144 To be avoided. Unless you want to keep stubbing your toes, find another room. Constant hammering of badly locking deck panels and the wind howling on the Balcony door because it doesn't close properly, will keep you awake.Read All Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom (VC) Reviews >>
