Disappointing Food but Great Destinations
Destination: Baltic Sea
We also felt that the cruise line were trying to "nickel and dime" us at every opportunity. We did have a bit of a fight with customer services over the mini bar in our room. There was no price list for the contents of the room fridge and, since we had paid up front for all our drinks, we figured that the water and soda in the fridge was included in the drinks package. Then to our More surprise, a week into the cruise, $60 had been added to our account for "mini bar" ! Had they been adding the charges from day 1 we'd have been aware and stopped drinking the water in the fridge (we could get bottled water for free from any bar on the boat since we'd already paid for our drinks up front). We figured that the "mini bar" staff likely deliberately omitted to leave a price list so that we'd be charged and they would then get their 18% gratuities. We felt conned.
The ship also looked rather "tired" in many places with rag-like curtains/blinds in the dining room and broken fixtures in some bars. The bar staff were fantastic, however, and they were a major redeeming factor for us, making our post-dinner evenings thoroughly enjoyable. Less
Cabin review: E28600 Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
Our cabin was fine. It was kept very clean by our lovely room attendant and the beds were actually comfy (although a bit too soft for my son, who likes a very firm bed). It was worth the extra money to have a balcony as we spent a lot of time relaxing on it, in the sunshine, watching the ocean. Had we not had a balcony, we'd have had to use the public areas on the top deck and they were very crowded. Our cabin was very quiet and at night all we could hear was the ocean swishing by (we were lucky enough to have weather warm enough to keep our balcony doors wide open 24/7) - very relaxing. Also, the shower was very nice and hot with plenty of power.Read All Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (E2) Reviews >>
