Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2012

Check in was delayed by Port clearance but once underway went smoothly and without any real problems.

We went looking for our cabin and and found it aft, port side, above the Oceanview Cafe, unfortunately the elevator lobby for these Deck 11 staterooms is simply overwhelmed with the strong garlic smell coming up from the cafe kitchen. It was incredibly irritating the entire cruise.

The Cabin was nicely decorated but had numerous problems which I documented in the Cabin evaluation. The ship would not allows us to open the connector door to our friends balcony citing "safety concerns" which they were unable to articulate. We had booked early to get side by side, overpaid and were very disappointed by this. Our sailaway gifts were delivered after dinner the first night and Danilo, our steward had our shrimp replaced a few days later.

Cabin Review

Cabin CC

Deck 11 Aqua Class add on cabin #1111, half covered balcony, good storage, balcony has serious drainage problems. We had standing water on numerous occasions and as a result the balcony was very dirty.

Ship refused to allow us to open the connector to our friends balcony citing "safety concerns" whatever that means.

PA volume control did not work.

The heated bathroom mirror significantly raised the temperature in the bathroom when the light was left on. You can feel the heat radiating from it.

The split glass shower doors leaked all over the floor of the bathroom.

The fancy shower rig had to be tightened by the room steward as it flopped down and just missed my head.

The sliding door to the balcony was already damaged and would not latch properly.

We had dirty water fall on our breakfast twice as the crewed washed deck 12 and the water cascaded onto our balcony at 730 in the morning. They never washed our deck!
