Sail Date: Apr 2015
Cabin: Spa Ocean View (obstructed views)

Our cabin was on deck nine just under "The Gathering", (the place where you ate is you didn't want to dine in one of the fine restaurants) and the pool & the recreation area which was Deck 10 & 11. Anytime during the night, you could hear tables & chairs scooting around on the decks. We complained several times. they said they were unaware of any such problems. How could they have not known? Finally, they gave us a 20% discount on our fare! But, that didn't help the fact that we didn't get much sleep the entire venture.

Plus, we never reached any of our destinations on time because of some weather related incident. causing any excursion planned to be late. One excursion we planned was to "Hell's Gate River Tubing" which took approximately 3 hours on a bus to get there & back (half of that trip was on a bumpy dirt road). We had to be pulled most of the way down the shallow river by our guide. so disappointing!

I'm just saying if you book this cruise, don't bunk on deck nine! I've said about all I want to say as far as this cruise was concerned. I don't recommend it & will never book another cruise on this ship again! The cabin attendants & the crew were exceptional. The entertainment was adequate, but sufficient!
