The furnishings in the cabin looked well used. The ship is getting old but it is still seaworthy. The staff gave conflicting answers to simple questions asked. A inexpensive Wi-Fi program was offered to counter the expensive charges on regular internet programs. Unfortunately this program was useless as you could not get your emails. Some of the water dispensers in the buffet lines did not work and you could not fill water bottles. Charges for water for your room was expensive. Wrist bands were not used so filling out paperwork for food/drink etc was a common issue. Many of the buffet locations were closed down at various times which forces you to scramble to find open stations. Elevators very slow. Line ups occurred frequently at the front desk. The emergency muster was in disarray and not informative or reaffirming. Wine selection was limited. With a few changes I feel this ship could be a good sail.

A few issues!

Cabin Review

Panorama Suite with Balcony
Cabin PS 6180
There was a butler and maid for this cabin. Both were excellent in making our trip better than it could have been without them.
