Good News and Bad News
Our oceanview cabin was older indeed, but the More beds and linens were super. And the stewards so hardworking and kind. Anytime dining was a pleasure and mostly very good food. A few choices I made not so great, but they were the exception. No, not 5 star quality, but pretty good considering the many choices. Service here ranged from exceptional to OK. The tasting bar was delicious, and the deli had smoked salmon, and other treats. We used room service every morning for coffee, and it was always on time and I felt like a princess.
We went to the Motor City Show, and enjoyed it. Adult Comedy was funny and not all that raunchy. Best of all was the Serenity Deck and the two other Aft decks off the Lido deck. Wonderful spaces to read, watch the beautiful marine blue sea and meet nice folks. The Spa offers free steam and sauna, but both had issues. Much needed maintenance here. Steam room actually dangerous as the shut off failed and it was burning hot. Sauna had broken door, so that heat escapes. Bummer. Spa attendants told me repairs could not be made for lack of parts. Ah well, not a big deal. Still, one wonders with a huge maintenance staff that both were not working. In any case, we had beautiful weather, lovely moments and I would do it again, and at the affordable price and easy drive to Charleston, it will be soon. This cruise as all cruises is what you make it. And it wasn't hard to have a wonderful time. Less
This cabin had a third bunk bed which we didn't need. It was more than adequate, and while older, clean and super comfortable beds and linens and pillows. Plenty of storage, and bigger bathroom than other ships I've sailed. No toiletries except in shower dispenser, no hairdryer, no mini refrigerator. So bring what you need. The cabin was very quiet, and when you figure out the airflow control, comfortable. Good location.
Ship is really showing her age
