Cabin: Balcony

Chose this cruise because departure port was close to home. Overall very satisfied. Excursion was cancelled because of wind, but we did get on another excursion.The cabin stewards and buffet area tables cleaning staff work extremely hard with barely a minutes break and did a fantastic job. This time cruising I was not too impressed with the lunch or dinner buffet. We did use other choices available for meals. Main complaint was witnessing total disregard for passengers luggage by the staff baggage handlers on the ship at elevator on 7th floor where our cabin was. While waiting for the elevator my daughter and I watched them completely flip full carts of luggage on the floor and proceed to throw piece by piece into various piles on the floor. It is one thing if they do this when no one is looking but I was appalled it was being done with us standing there watching them. I will be carrying my luggage on next time.

Cabin Review


Cabin 8A

Cabin was good location and well kept. There was enough closet, shelf and drawer storage. Bathroom vanity area small, but we made it work. Liked having the retractable clothes line in the shower to hang wet clothing
