We just returned from a 12 day repositioning from Boston to Florida - The ship as said before is getting a little dated, but the staff was doing an excellent job of keeping it clean. The maintenance staff was at work every day scraping and painting even when we were in port. The rooms yes are a little dated, but quite frankly our room was perfect. The bed was so comfortable we slept in every day until 8:30 or 9 (we usually get up at 5 or 6). The staff as usual went out of their way to make you feel good and enjoy. We did know that they were going into dry dock on November 1, 2017 and the staff was looking forward to the updates they were planning on doing. Yes, the laundry was being redone apparently. I still love the smaller ships and will continue to book those as I don't like living in a small city like the bigger ships are pushing.

It was delightful

Cabin Review

Cabin 7559
We had a great cabin, that only complaint is that this cabin is directly over the pub and anything that is going on in the pub you can hear. The guitar player played about 4-5 times during our trip from 9 or 10 until late - Late is considered after midnight apparently as one night he didn't stop playing until about 1:30. Our cabin was fine otherwise. The bed was comfortable. The carpets were fine and not threadbare as others have mentioned. Shower was always clean and the doors didn't leak like others we've been in. I'm not sure why people complain about the rooms.
