Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2014

Background information: Me-32 Wife-28, traveling with 12 family members, been on one cruise prior (Carnival)

Hotel information: N/A, we drove to port from home

Ship information: Largest ship I've ever been on, awesome layout and design, overall a very attractive ship with lots to offer, there are some signs of age and a few dated looking features but I wouldn't have really noticed had I not read reviews prior to sailing. We did have an issue with an azipod going down and a hurricane chasing our butt but I'll elaborate more on that in the summary.

Cabin Review

Cabin: Excellent. We had an interior stateroom on Deck 6, it was clean and spacious due to smart design (tons of storage in closet and drawers). It was in overall excellent shape with no chips, cracks, stains. The bed and pillows were surprisingly comfortable and a real treat after a long night of boozing, gambling and dancing. Shower had strong, consistent pressure. Stanley our Room Steward was excellent. Only issue we could complain about would be some rattling due to the aforementioned azipod issue. Once that was resolved, so was the rattling.
