Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

We were on this ship for 12 days and thankfully only two sea days. We toured the Baltics We noticed that windows throughout the ship had cracks, tile in the Lido Dining Room floor was lifting when people stood on the tile waiting to be served from the food line. The grout in the floor tile looked dirty. The dining room tables in the Lido was cracked and peeling. Also, furniture in the lobby had gashes running down the front of the chair.

The brass was dull and the entire ship looked outdated.

We questioned that if the ship did not have the necessary cosmetic repairs how was the engine room and life boat repairs. Were they up to standards?

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VB

The cabin was ok. The bathroom had cracks in the tile floor. Walking towards the cabin, down the hall we could smell an odor, perhaps the carpets hadn't been replaced or cleaned in a while. The cabin was not updated in a few years.

Port Reviews


We took scab to the downtown and walked aroun. Found a wonderful department store with all sorts of candies and cakes downstairs


We took a tour through the ship excursions to a concentration camp. It was tyrng and expensive but well with it.
