Sail Date: Sep 2015
Cabin: Large Ocean View Stateroom

I cant say enough for our room attendant, he was great. He always had a smile and more then willing to accommodate you. Our cabin was the standard Ocean View room, enough space for item for this long of cruise.

Now to the real concerns for the trip. Our first hour on ship went up to the Schooner bar, two bloody marys and a whopping $24.00 tab. That's robbery and prices that are charged in Vegas. No glitz or glamor. Then we inquired about drink packages, $22.00 a day per person for the cola, OJ, water package. It went up from there. Inquired about the Wi-Fi package, $20.00 per day, PP. That's what some pay at home, that is the $20.00 per month. Then we find out that the gratuities have gone up, $12.95 PP, per day. Our we subsidizing the cruise line employment compensation. Then every where you go, you are harassed by personnel to buy-up for a special food restaurant.

And how about charging you $150.00 to take a tour of the kitchen, bridge, etc.. I have been on many cruises where this is offered as a compliantly tour.
