Sail Date: Jan 2015

We got a real good price for an inside cabin so it made the trip worth it. The ship was refurbished in 13 but already shows wear and tear. Embarkation was a pain. First they won't let you take your own luggage on the ship. You have to give it to the luggage sharks that want money to take care of it. You go through to the first line to get papers that you have already filled out online. Then you go to another line to check in then they give you a number to go wait in another line. No one tells you so you walk up to the front and they look at you like your stupid and tell you to go sit and wait. Everyone did this big lack of communication.

This dumb wait was so you could get inline for them to take your picture getting on the ship. Lots of people didn't want it but they make you wait.

You finally get on board. No welcome aboard no one pointing the way. Fend for yourself. They did not even have a departure party till 11:30 when we left port.

Cabin Review

Cabin I1

We finally found our room same as any other inside cabin bed dressers closets bathroom. Our safe did not work took two days for them to believe us. The batteries were dead I told them. Five people later and one maintenance guy later it was fixed. Stupid thing is that only one key card works. So every time we wanted in the safe we had to get her card. The shower curtains are not set inside the shower enough so the whole floor gets wet when you use it.This boat rocked more then any other boat we have been on. even in calm waters it was rocking. There was something above us that creaked and groaned with every rock or roll.We complained but it just kept happening. They seemed to be loading and moving things around all the time.
