We wanted to see Australia. Upon entering the ship it was filthy. I had to get the maid to clean it again. The first day the PA system was broken and we missed our first port and their was no music for the first 13 days. The food was all frozen junk. We had the room in the back of the ship and the balcony was filled with shoot we could not go on it for fear of being asphyxiated. There was smoke also in the room. We missed 4 ports because the tenders were not safe in 2 ft sees. We prayed there wouldn’t be a real emergency we wouldn’t have made it. There was 3 emergencies on the ship. 40% of the People on the ship were sick. The busiest person was the Doctor. People paid $30 for a bandage. One passenger was billled $19,000 for medical expense. There was a complete lack of communication on what was going on. We spent weeks planning our stops at these ports. One stop was a completely beautiful sunny day with not a cloud in the sky and it was cancelled because of waves as we watch 18 ft little boats fly by with no problem. We stopped at one port on Christmas Day. The entire town was closed, totally. Another one was New Years Day same totally closed. The entertainment was better at many grade school talent shows. The poor people working on this ship were worked to death. It was disheartening. If they paid me $10,000 to go on this ship I would refuse. The best thing about this ship was that we were lucky enough to be the very first people off this disaster.

Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom

Small, smelly, everything rattled, I couldn’t sleep. My wife actually had to have sheets put on the furniture because of the filth. When we got home we left every thing out in the cold because of the fear of bed bugs.
