Sail Date: Dec 2018
Cabin: Ocean View

Cruised from New Orleans between Christmas and New Years. Incredible staff try so hard. Food was way better than expected. I really liked 3 out of the 4 dinners I had. Our ocean view cabin on second deck was really spacious. I doubt you get that much sq footage in newer model ships. The few updated experiences they have are good such as the Alchemy Bar and the sports bar (though its way too small for the amount of people who wanted to be there).

The bathrooms are in desperate need of a remodel. The pool area is overun and gross. Not enough deck chairs. Having said all of this, I would have given it four stars but for the sewage stench that grew worse and worse as the trip went on. By the last night it was overwhelming on deck 2. She is a proud old ship, time to clean her out. Fun Cruise and recommend once they fix the issues with the coming 400m remodel.
