Bland, old ship; boring food, loud banging at night

Sail Date: June 2017
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Charleston
ill try to keep it short. got a suite with a deck that is one of the most expensive to get. loud banging every night until 12am that would vibrate the walls and ceiling like heavy thunder would, same thing at 6am. the weight room is located over at least 10 suites and every time they dropped the weights the banging happened, could not get any sleep so my cruise included a 2 hr nap every day --- SUCKED!. I complained to customer service and they said they would look into it. others said that's the way the ship is built. no help at all. many times late at night we would be almost asleep and was violently woke to bam bam bam it was horrible. cabin was nice but beds got to my back after a couple of days.

food was basically the same thing chicken rice and baked potatoes. desserts looked good but had little flavor. pool was too small to do anything with and was always full at 12-14 people. entertainment was the same acts every night. the amenities that we thought the boat had were More not there.once they get your money they don't care and you are on your own. no way I would cruise again. the staff did their job but looked like a bunch of zombies as they cleaned the dining rooms and served. most barely spoke English you could understand. excursions were mostly a money grab. Less
