Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin:

The cabin was tired and old looking. Looked as if the room was decorated in the 70's. There was a bath which didn't work however you had to climb into it to use the shower. The outdoor chairs on the balcony were old. Overall the size of the cabin and bathroom was good. Cabin staff were friendly but kept knocking on the door in the ending to see when you were,going for dinner so they could turn down the sheets. The food was the most disappointing aspect...cheap, highly processed and over cooked and often cold. I was amazed you don't hear of mass food poisoning. The "new look Pantry" was dismal worse than a bad food court. The Waterfront Restaurant 'fine dining' was a joke. The Sal Grill which you pay an extra $49 each wasn't bad but lacked finesse and was disappointed that you then had to pay for the tea/coffee at the end. The Chefs Table which was an extra $100 each was good. The outdoor hot tubs looked like a cesspool of germs and I never seen the water quality checked once. The pools were too cold to swim in. Enrichment Activities were geared to the overweight, nothing more than a hard sell to get them to buy detox or weight loss programs on the ship. The staff were under trained.
