We (50ish sisters) took the Entertainment Tours bus from PVD to the Manhattan Port, getting there at about 12:30. The power was still out in the terminal so we had to take the stairs since the elevators didn't work and it was a little chilly inside. Thankfully they were able to use the PC's. We had VIP status so our boarding took no time at all. We were on by 1 and the cabins were ready about 1:10. Driving through the city was sad with all of the bags of trash piled up from Hurricane Sandy.
Our cabin was definitely not re-done. The carpet was badly stained and the beds were saggy. On top of that there was no cold water, the door on the shower was falling off and the hinge on the bathroom door needed WD40 real bad. Speaking of the bathroom, the soap dish in the shower held water making your soap soggy, what were they thinking? I thought all soap dishes drained. In the basket of goodies were toothpaste, lotion, shampoo and conditioner. We found two Kleenex not picked up from the previous occupants (clearly in view). I wish they had a sliding balcony door as all you could hear from your neighbors was the door slamming shut if you didn't hold onto it. And with families with kids on either side of us, that made for a lot of door slamming.
We did check out the gym and there was plenty of equipment.
We were surprised by the amount of storage space. Wish we brought more clothes to use it all! The light switches had dimmers which was nice but it took getting used to how they worked. Balcony had one lounger, two chairs and a small table. Good amount of floor space in the cabin. We were spoiled. Our cabin was starboard and the inside cabin doors are on portside so we probably had less traffic.
