A Little Disappointed
However, after a few days on the ship, we were surprised that cleanliness did not seem to be the main priority. We do not believe our cabin was vacuumed the entire time we were on the ship.

Then, of course, there was a problem with the toilets in our cabin (and others), supposedly, because someone had flushed something down the system which caused so many of the cabins to be stuck with toilets which did not flush for a day (actually, it happened twice). It caused a smell in various parts of the ship.

The person in charge of the excursions (Vickie), and our dining room waiters (Wayan, and his assistant) were the only two persons I remember as being attentive. The excursions were fine, although on one of them, we could barely understand what the tour guide was saying. I did like the fact that there was transportation to the far away cities although it was called something else. I certainly didn't want to risk using a private company and be stuck far away and miss the ship.
