First & Last Cruise- Horrible
The other passengers were a mixture of people 60+, and foreigners. The foreigners had their own cultural norms they were following and seemed very rude. They were often pass out drunk. I was physically More shoved several times by people wanting me out of the way for better views. Coming back to my room one day around noon was a naked Philippine man lying in the hallway. The older people expected the boat to be a floating senior center. It was impossible to sit alone with my husband and enjoy each other, as within minutes an older stranger would sit down and yack my ear off. All the activities and music on the ship was geared towards the elderly. Bingo and outdated trivia being popular. The food in the main dining room was good, but service was slow and a meal would take 2 hours. The food in the windjammer buffet was gross, crowded, and the place smelled bad. Every time I ordered room service they gave me an incorrect order.
The worst was the rude staff at guest services. I was double billed for my excursion, and guest services said they couldn't do anything so I had to call my credit card for fraudulent charges. Overall, I felt the ship was horrible, everything felt like a big sales pitch for my money, and being nickel and dimed. I liked alaska but it would have been better to just fly there. Less
Cabin review: 7036
Dirty, stained walls, no toiletries, no clock anywhere, aging 90's decor.
