Little "luxury", little value

Perhaps if told "luxury" frequently enough, we'll believe it? First, the positive: The cabin was most spacious, a comfortable bed, desk, balcony. The bathroom & shower equally nice, roomy and clean. The food ...

The ship was not elegant at all. For the price, we expected much better. It was clean, and comfortable (except for too many chairs in the event rooms), but very ordinary looking. The food was also very average, ...
