Sail Date: Apr 2016

The ship was very disappointing. The online photos and videos are very misleading as they show show open, bright airy spaces but the ship is dark, cramped and crowded. There is lifted carpeting throughout the ship and broken windows. The Queens lounge was the biggest disappointment - the band knew only one tune and played it over and over until only the drunks remained, and when the band took a break they put on a recording of the same boring tune ( worst music I've heard on 32 cruises)

The dinning hours are not at all workable - breakfast of any kind is not available to early risers. Early seating for dinner is at 5:30 so if you come back from an excursion and have a late lunch you are not ready for dinner and then when you are hungry later in the evening there is nothing open to get something to eat.

The entire ship appears to have been designed entirely for serving drinks and anything else is just in the way. The cabin we had was tiny - we could not open the drawers without moving the bed and there was no chair ( or room for one) to sit in while waiting for ones travel companion to get ready.
