Sail Date: Oct 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

I like to take a repositioning cruise to relax after a long road trip. If not for the bridge games I would’ve jumped ship. The cabin had a ticking noise all night, the beds were hard, and there was a mildew smell in the hallway the entire cruise. We always eat in the buffet because we like the many options. We are kosher and have more choices on the buffet. The service at the buffet was excellent although the choices were more meager than usual. The entertainment was wonderful, every night brought an amazing act to the stage. The ports were the Canary Islands off the African coast, we enjoyed the tours we purchased from the cruise line. The disembarkation was awful, we didn’t get off the ship at the designated time, the lines through customs were awful. There were only 6 custom agents for 3000 people, our car service charged us an extra 50 dollars for the delay, a highly disappointing end to an average cruise.
