we had been dreaming of a cruise for a very long time, we are both disabled and on a fixed income and almost seniors, the ad came in an email, what seemed like a good deal, we were booking an inside cabin when a balcony became available for the same price so we jumped on it, the first cruise experience was great and we met some amazing people, and the crew and staff were amazing and very graciouse and polite. we enjoyed a number of shows onboard and although we don't drink , we did enjoy some of the bars and lounges, the food for the most part was very good except the food was very salty most the time, if your on a salt free diet you might be in trouble! my wife spent some time in the casino and won some money, this is where the trip went bad, my wife on the last night onboard came up missing some money from her purse which she left in the room when ever we left the room. we decided to report it to security, they came to our cabin and searched the room and our luggage at least three times, causing us to miss the last night of festivities and shows, and treatment from the security personal made us feel like we were criminals, we didn't accuse anybody of anything just that we were missing money. I felt humiliated, and confused. and they made us feel as we had done something wrong, would like to go again maybe on this ship, just won't report any problems. probably should checkout other cruiselines.

Bad last night
