Sail Date: Feb 2019
Cabin: Spacious Panoramic Ocean View

over all poor rating is due to my not find this ship to be is handicap friendly at all , and is was extremely hazardous . Automated door buttons don’t work , doors don’t open , there was a raised door sill into bathroom what made getting in there on knee scooter difficult , there was no seat in shower despite written request with reservations & request verification before sailing ( service desk said “ yes yes yes “ ) still had to contact housekeeping before one was found & brought to room , large square shower open into room on 2 sides, shower curtain only covers 1 side , so no mater how you work it 1/2 of bathroom drenched.

As a right below knee amputee I found the entire ship is a trip hazard, it is covered in multiple floor elevation changes( Lumps Bumps and raised doorways ) with no variation in coloring as warning , my balance & Mobility are decent and yet I stumbled and tripped thought out the ship. people with canes , walkers , wheelchairs required assistants.

Boarding the ship at EVERY port was humiliating, the metal hardware in my prosthstitic leg sets off the alarms , I understand the FULL strip & pat down the first couple of times ..... but the same crew , EVERY TIME ? 2 & 3 times a day for all 7 days ? I tried to explain , showed them how it fit , what the parts were ,,,, NO I got more action from the security lady then I did from my husband.

Cabin Review

Spacious Panoramic Ocean View

Cabin 1L

Room 1814 was a beautiful panoramic ocean view , Handicapped accessible room , AC was horrible, cooler out on deck then in room , drapes had to be keep closed during the day or the room became unbearable . Closed at night or lights from room effected the Bridge , what good are all those amazing windows if you can never open the drapes :( .
