Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Some American friends invited us along and the itinerary seemed great. August 2017.

The RotteNdam as we named her was a floating bathtub. Raining in Boston on embarcation and there was water coming through the roof in the lido dining room so they covered the bain marie and had buckets everywhere. Ocean view cabin was the usual expectation, but very dated. Walked around and got wet socks assumed the previous occupant had spilt something. Couldn't see much thru the window covered in salt spray. Read on.

Day one after lunch went for a swim and the pool was cold sharing the hot spa a guy told me last trip the heater had failed and they hadn't repaired it. Went to the lido gents and it stank. Great start. Complained.

Usual cruise line standard for this category.

Old dated but clean and functional.
