Talk about unhealthy!

Sail Date: July 2014
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Orlando (Port Canaveral)

I always start with the positives:

Alchemy bar and staff were great and created lots of interesting drinks. Worth the money.

Shore Ex's were OK with the fishing in Belize the best thought a bit pricey, but we needed the boat shore ex as the fishing was an hour plus away in the jungle! Saw the likelihood of a missed boat otherwise.

Negatives, which far exceeded the positives. Wait until the cruise line gets sued for workers comp, even by the US employees. There was smoking everywhere, and the casino was completely engulfed in smoke with smoking tables on one side of each table with slots allowing smoking ant the bar with a hundred smokers. UGH!

Fried food? Fattening food? That is all they seemed to have in the buffets. Eggs cooked only 1 way and drippy (probably not eggs but some mix!) toast, bagels, muffins were toasted and then set out in the refrigerator to get cold. The staff could not keep up with the people in such a small cramped space. More Interesting that the whole boat becomes a dining hall at meal time.

The boat designer must have been from a drug filled environment, particularly LSD as the ship was very convoluted and difficult to get around. Who thought up the design, Lewis Carroll?

The pool is too crowded as they do their "shows" there. Need to find a different place to do an ice carving show out of the sum and where people could actually watch! How about a stage???

I am glad we brought soap and shampoo, who uses the stuff in the walls that you have no idea what it is? Some soaps use peanut oil, and other cancer causing ingredients, so where is the labeling required by law on the stuff they give you?

Dining time was such a treat for us!!! We got to watch hundreds of people sit around and wait to eat every night, while the dining room for the 8:15 seating was empty. They need to rethink the anytime dining thing or the space allocated.

The sushi restaurant had nice people, but the fish was warm (not good) and the rolls had all kinds of sauces in them that were not labeled. I should know what is good, worked and lived in Japan for 5 years. Less
