Ship was okay Cabin with balcony was great Dining in the restaurant was horrible. However buffets were better with plenty of variety Charged for any/all activity . Expensive. Attacked by so many staff members pushing drink packages. Embarking and disembark were very long for the elderly to walk. However the luggage at disembarking was very well organized Did not feel enough time for excursions or at each port. Pool experience was bad. Guests saved all the lounge chairs with pool towels and left to use the gym or spa or dining room and not return for hours. Management was well aware and decided to do something about it on day 5 of a 7 day trip. Found pool mgr to be very unfriendly and annoyed at guests Will not be returning on this line . Overall experience was not up to par. Most of the staff was very hard to understand due to language barrier although They tried very hard to communicate

Unpleasant
