Cabin: Ocean View Suite

First cruise and probably the last.

The list of problems on this ship are too numerous to elaborate. Briefly - no hot water some days, no self serve coffee/tea available - only available with room service after 6:00 pm, inadequate seating spaces for breakfast and lunch during inclement weather, options for meals are severely limited, old and outdated stateroom, poorly coordinated and overpriced excursions, movie room had seating for about 8 people. At embarkation they lost 2 of our 3 pieces of luggage so that we had to track them down. Three full days at sea with nothing to do - what a waste of time and money. TV program listings on the daily activity sheet were for the day before. They cleaned the brass handrails on the stairs with Brasso and failed to wipe it down thoroughly. Got black on our hands when we used them. Service providers were overly friendly but many did not understand English.

One redeeming quality was the workout room was well equipped.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Suite

Cabin S

Old and outdated everything. The tub was very difficult to get into as it had very high sides. It also was very narrow and difficult to maneuver in once you got in it. There are 2 electrical outlets in the entire suite. My plugs did not fit in the one in the bathroom. Fortunately we took an electrical expansion device with more outlets and plugged it into the only other electrical outlet. The bed was very short - we are tall and our feet hung over the bottom edge.
