Sail Date: Nov 2014
Cabin: Promenade Stateroom

We went on this cruise because our community hosted it. The food was good and our waiter was fabulous. The ship is tired and worn. I heard it's going in for a renovation in April, so that will make it better. The captain is a hoot. He makes jokes during his morning presentation and was a ham at the return cruisers party. The staff is not stingy with the drinks during those parties either, which is a nice change from some other lines. There's plenty of space to chill in areas of the ship that are private. The gym is adaquate and the pools are inviting. All in all we had a good time.

Cabin Review

Promenade Stateroom

Cabin PR

The bed was uncomfortable, and old. It should be better after the refurbish in April. The fixtures are worn, but working. My husband told me he was looking for the crank to turn on the TV. :) It was that out of date. It also only semed to be clear on the Spanish channels. Nothing much to watch while you get dressed for dinner etc, but we really didn't miss it.
