I was so excited to take my friend with me to see Greece, especially the islands. I am 72 and my friend is 70 and has claustrophobia so we decided to spend some extra money and get a Neptune Suite. We were so excited until we arrived at our room. I couldn't believe it was a Neptune Suite it was so much smaller because about a fourth of the room was taken up with a handicapped bathroom. It had a shower you for wheelchair person to sit and be hosed down, and lets the water get on the floor-slippery, dangerous to us. The bathtub was so deep we had to hang onto the handicapped rails to actually climb into it. We both almost fell a few times, made this a problem for us as well. The curtains were on electric button so you had to keep them either closed all the way or open all the way. With the sun beating down it made the room too hot when open during the day, and the view was basically tunnel vision so you could watch the water move from the engine. The cruise itself was good but the room was a nightmare for us.

Beware this is a handicapped room.Not comfortable for other passengers-room 6164

Cabin Review

Neptune Deluxe Verandah Suite
Cabin SC 6164
Cabin was a nightmare and was very unhappy with the entire situation. Be careful if you are not handicapped and need special facilities. This room does not have double sinks, cabinets or shelves in the bathroom, plus I found the bath and shower facilities unsafe for my friend and myself. Hard to climb into the tub to shower, and the actual shower would get the floor wet in the bathroom making it unsafe for us. Couldn't control the curtains to have opened a little. Ramp to balcony made the chair lean forward all the time. Had to watch tv from the beds only and lounge area was small and uncomfortable to use. If you are handicapped with a caregiver this would be appropriate for you, but not for just anyone. We should have been warned about what we were getting.
