Noel took extremely good care of us and went above and beyond. He made sure extra water and towels were in place. His smile lit up the ship every time we got to say "Hello!"
He was patient and kind. He boosted our experience of the cruise
Thank you to Noel and all of his companions.

Upon entering I thought we had travelled back in time, very dowdy and unimpressive, balcony badly rusted, ugly green 1960's handbasin in the otherwise blue bathroom. Soap not provided till 6th day of cruise (just as well we had brung our own), shower gel and shampoo provided in shower, but no conditioner. I bumped my leg on Day 1 which bled on corner of doona cover and on bed throw, these blood marks remained on the covers for the entire cruise and were never changed at all. Counted about 30 holes the size of a cigarette burn in curtains. Husband cut his fingernails on balcony on 3rd day, remains of which were still there the day we disembarked. Daughter slept on sofa bed, which just had a gym mat for covering, until she spoke to Housekeeping supervisor. Read entire member review >>
We were in an aft room 6333. Balcony could have been cleaner and furniture needs to be replaced. TV was an older model and not flat screen. My sister was on deck 7 and they did have a flat screen. Aft rooms in the ship are very convenient to the Lido and dining rooms. Sheets and pillows seem old and need to be replaced. Very hard to see from aft back room while sitting in chairs - they need to be taller. Also be aware that there is not a cover on the balcony. If you get sea sick easily, a bit more vibration on the back and you can also smell the fumes at times. Glass on balcony needs to be cleaned. We had 3 people in the room and the room did have a pull out bed for the 3rd person - it was not attached to the wall but a bed so that was nice for the 3rd person. Read entire member review >>
Underwhelming. Disappointing. The bed covers were frayed with a small hole. Looked old and depressing. Old TV unit. No individual control for heat or AC. Rusted old or handicapped person's seat attached to interior shower wall. Really creepy! So many rusty fixtures were on this ship! Rust in areas of balcony. Read entire member review >>
Dated decore, old TV like an old computer monitor from the 1990's (not a flat screen), bright green sink with bright blue bathroom floors. Balcony was bigger as it was at the back of the ship. We had the lounge converted to a single bed as there was 3 travelling in our group. Hari our cabin steward was wonderful. He kept the cabin as neat as a pin and was very quick in making the room over when we went out. Read entire member review >>
great view, great balcony, quiet location, shower had low water pressure, feel swaying of boat like a rocking chair motion (very lulling and soothing) small constant vibration of engine which helped us sleep at night Read entire member review >>
