I'm genuinely not a person who complains about anything. I'm such a simple person to please, and pretty laid back. With that said, this ship needs some major updating. Yes, there's a musky smell as soon as you enter ...

The ship is fairly large, there is so much to explore (on your own). The cabins aren't very spacious but are decent. The colors are very outdated. The beds are comfortable. The are many dining options, changing ...
