Sail Date: Sep 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Won't sail her again. As ships go, they have substituted a lot of public deck area (views, comfort of strolling) for added features not too many people even used. The design is poor, as you can't even walk around the front of ship (unlike Indy) without feeling like you're in a wind tunnel! Robot bar thing is gimmicky and useless. Promenade space is cramped with considering the size of ship. The worst thing is how narrow the decks were---crammed with WAY too many deck lounger chairs. How a lot of the elderly and moms and dads with prams (most of the ship) navigated walking is a mystery. The North Star was nice!

Door to cabin was very narrow. Housekeeping was hit or miss. Food was so-so. The television in our room had a missing pixel line going right through the middle of the screen. Not that it mattered much, as all they have on is Polish BBC and that silly cruise director program and Spa treatment ads, non stop.

The rooms were noisy. You could hear people walking in the cabin above, and the toilets and showers in adjoining state rooms.
