What's That Smell

Sail Date: November 2011
Destination: Bermuda
Embarkation: Other

Raw sewage smell around rooms on 7Th floor, stronger at elevators. Crew completely dis- regaurded all passengers request of where it was coming from as if they didn't know what we were talking about. Read past review remarks on same subject before Nov.2011. Definitely a problem that needs to be addressed.

Scheduled evening dining was superb, however buffet dining was a disappointment after being told the food is excellent and top notch. Not ! $3.25 for a soda, Really? Our room was attended to twice a day. Excellent stateroom attendant. Evening dinner head waiter ( Mark ) was awesome. The bread guy was kinda annoying(asst waiter). Mark needs a promotion to head maitre d. He was very precise and to perfection.

Days full of events with evenings as well on the ship. Would have liked to seen a nightly disco dance floor for the adults. Ship shows some rust and deterioration on external surfaces. Rocky seas, windy at Bermuda with rain. Not ships fault, better to attend in More March-August. Room service needs to change nightly menu on a every other night option. we wore that service out especially with children on board. Crew was very nice in all area's. Some crew members are confused with the English grammar. Good people though.

Capt. should address once in morning and in evening on conditions and what to expect. Nothing like a rocking ship with unexplained noises through out cruise and hearing the anchor being released and trying to figure out what that sound was. First time cruisers hear. Not a fan as of yet. Will try once more before deciding on future cruising. Less

Windy, Watch out for traffic. They drive on opposite side compared to US. Take ferry tour or train tour if wanting to stay local to ship. Pink buses are local transportation, and not a tour bus. Average pricing, change back is of bermuda money
