Additional details

Sail Date: Jul 2015
Cabin: Balcony Classic

Arrived at the port at 1pm to find pushing , shoving and yelling and no signs to help and had to hunt for assistance.

Finally on board and we were directed to the buffet as our cabin was not yet ready. More pushing, shoving and yelling with lines to the buffet ,scrambling for a table and the food was not good.

6pm and no suitcases but I found them by the elevators and took them to our cabin.

Cabin Review

Balcony Classic

Cabin BC

The cabin was pleasant though it sometimes smelled of smoke.It was quiet.In the middle of the cruise while in a port workmen came in to update the TV and at times the balcony could not be used due to maintenance.Our cabin steward was pleasant and kept the room clean, but he never went out of his way to offer us ice or shampoo that I found out later could be asked for
