Wanted to go to the North Cape. This was a trip from hell. Our luggage was delayed for 4 days and when the cruise started there were very few clothing items to buy. After two days of this we asked to be booked on a flight to go home at the next port and they said they could not do this. DON'T KNOW WHY. We could not go on shore excursions or even to the dining room due to lack of clothes. Got very tired of the buffet and not being able to find a seat. The cabins sure need to be refurbished and given a very good cleaning. Our sheets were not changed in our 2 weeks and everything looked dirty. The balcony was not swept once. The entertainment was awful. After 3 nights it just wasn't worth the crowds for the bad shows. Worst we have seen on any cruise line. I also never saw so many misbehaved kids on a cruise. We usually don't travel in summer because of this, but had to for this cruise. Most of the food was medium to awful. Sure was not from scratch cooking. They even had veg soup from a can with some stuff added. I can open a can of this stuff at home.

Very disappointing cruise
