Wanted to try a new Cruise line. Embarking close to our location. “All Inclusive” drink package excludes many items, hard to know what’s included. Tiny library lacking any press, hardly any books etc. Restaurants (included in the price ) are trying to sell lobster and steak for x-tra 19-22 €. Sahara and Oasis bistros: except for fresh fruit are not worth a visit. Aurea “privileges” include access to an area on deck 16, which is not wheel- chair accessible. Charge for room service food items! Your Choice dining hours prevent diners from attending earlier shows. 22 PM shows are too late for many. Impossible to get even an over-the-counter pain killer from the medical facility without a € 100 medical examination. Pain killers available on board only while at sea. Except for a few kind employees, we have encountered inexperience and nonchalance. We can hardly wait to get off this ship!
