Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2012
Cabin: Large Interior Stateroom

This was our 9th cruise on RCI, we are Emerald members but if this was my first with them, it would be my last. There is an interior central area, the Centrum, that is about 6 decks high and reverberates sound, does not have anywhere near adequate seating and smells like sewage, especially at the bar and especially in port. So this is where the "entertainers" did their thing; not a good idea! The "aerialists" were ho hum and were invisible to most of the viewers on other than deck 4.

The staff were the usual great crowd,especially our stateroom attendant and the Dining room wait staff.

I had recent knee surgery, I limp and use a cane, but for the very long walk from check in to where the ship was docked no one asked if I would like assistance.

Cabin Review

Large Interior Stateroom

Adequate cabin. No room for suitcases but the attendant was able to get one of three under the bed. Good location near elevators.

Port Reviews

Venice

Embarkation was in Venice. We had a very long walk to the ship. The Italian immigration could not have been more rude if they had tried.
