This was a repositioning cruise right after dry dock. Embarking was delayed for inspections. The passengers were told to wait in the terminal....except the terminal was FULL so they moved more people to a different terminal. We sat outside on a bench for 3 hours with no water or facilities. When we were permitted inside another wait.

Got to our room and asked our room steward for a wedge for the head of the bed. He didn't know what we were talking about so he asked his housekeeping supervisor who also had no idea. We met the Hotel Manager, Carlo, at the Cruise Critic meet and greet and asked him for some help. finally got what we needed after the first night.

At dinner, for an apology by the captain and offered a FREE wine or beer. I asked for a diet coke instead and was told there would be a charge for the diet coke. Remember beer and wine were FREE.

Our assistant waiter was a disaster, our poor waiter needed to do both jobs. She couldn't carry the food from the kitchen to the dining room so the waiter carried 10 meals, she carried 3. The drinks were never refilled, the tables were not cleared. She just stood around.

As an elite, we get free laundry. We put the laundry in 4 days before disembarkation in Barcelona. We hadn't got the closes back, so we were forced to go to the laundromat because we ran out of clean clothes. We screamed and hollered for our laundry to be returned so that we could pack. The WET laundry was returned at 9:30PM.....and we still had to pack.

The best part of this cruise was disembarking...This is only a few of the problems we encountered

Cabin Review

Cabin BC B754

new bedding, shower curtain, etc....but the shower was so small that it was a problem getting clean. The soap did not foam, and the shower head was fixed so rinsing was a problem
