Tile missing,chipped,dirty around pool area. The a/c was terrible. Hot in cabin,lounges,showroom.called for repair.they said everything fine. Bring fan. Showroom was low ceiling,hot, ant not big enough.Rust showing everywhere.broken windows not fixed,door hinges broken.a lot of chairs broken. The bed matter access were terrible,my wife and I woke up everyday with a backache. The 3dining rooms were very small & not very attractive.Had no hot water for a whole day. Electric going out and flickering. I thought was going into get refurbished soon,but not the case. I asked the capt. When is the next time this ship is going in, and he told me not Till December.2017 and only in for 2weeks to work on the shaft & stabilizer. No cosmetic stuff. 2nd. The food other than the pizza&burgers was somewhere between a soup kitchen& hospital food. 3rd. The entertainment was not very good at all. The musical shows not the quality of other ships. Most of the entertainment was trivia. Good things were service,heated fresh water pool, itinerary,.nice closet in room.
