Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2013
Cabin: Interior

Took the 48 day (3 back to back legs) around south America starting in Long beach California on February 3 and ending in New York City on March 2.

(my points may be out of order as they happened on the cruise)

First it started off in Long Beach, almost 4 hours late leaving port, inefficiency to the extreme handling the flow of people, there was also confusion as they did not seem to know how to handle those who had not gotten their brazil visas, we had ours and we arrived at the port around 1130 am and got on the ship around 2 pm, many had far longer waits. Since I have a disability and travel with a powered travel scooter I usually get on very fast - this was the exception, and they did not have enough manual wheelchairs to cover the needs of those that could not stand for lengthy periods of time - then you had group leaders trying to pull ranks and try and get all the available wheelchairs for the needs of their group.

The stateroom 8342 I found a bit small but ok, noise issue as late at night you could hear deck chairs being dragged on the pool deck above, also the pool machinery room was right beside the room.
