Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2017
Cabin: Balcony

Fifteen of our senior community neighbors decided to sign up, so we joined them for a holiday at sea.

Although (rough guess) 80% of the passengers were seniors (over 60), the activities and entertainment was directed toward a MUCH younger crowd. Those 30 and under (crew and passengers) did enjoy the blaring music in public areas and "twerking" and gyrations of the young dancers. Half of the evening "entertainment" performances were done by a single hired performer or Crew Member. Apparently an effort to reduce entertainment expenses.

Strong smell of urine emanated from our bathroom as well as most mens public restrooms. You could smell the odor at the entrance of a couple of the restrooms, not just at the urinals themselves.

Cabin Review


Cabin BD

Average. Nice large balcony. Lots of rust and flaking paint however.

Strong Urine smell in bathroom. Called Steward and smell went away for about two days, then returned. Noticeable that when gratuities are prepaid, the Stewards are not nearly as evident or overly attentive - as when their tips depend on Superior services.
