The cabin itself was quite a bit smaller than I expected. There was no lounge, only a single chair, plus a stool in front of the dressing table/ desk. The single beds in our cabin were only 2’ 6” wide which is too narrow. Also, my bed was lumpy, I think because the mattress protector was ill fitting and kept bunching-up in the middle. Okay, so we only paid for a cheap inside cabin, so we don’t expect the world.
The air conditioning was very effective at cooling the cabin, but it was at times a little too cool and very sensitive to movements of the controller. Nevertheless, I would rather be cool than too hot.
The bathroom smelt musty/ mouldy as soon as we first entered the cabin. I think because the shower curtains may not be washed frequently enough and the whole bathroom smelt like it could do with a good wipe over with chlorine bleach. The toilet smelt of old urine from the minute we entered the cabin. Also the toilet seat did not appear to me to be very clean with old ingrained stains.
I think they need to spend more time on cleaning the cabins, especially the bathrooms. I suggest they should get the stewards to spend more time on this and less time on folding towels to make towel animals. Again they could do this at no extra cost and the passenger experience would be enhanced.
