Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2019
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Tried to put new adventure into the cruise life but the main reason was to sail Cspe Horn and see Ushuaua. And..... weather canceled so we went to some backwater ports of little interstate not history. Sad.

Do not let yourselves get booked into cabin 1964. A loud, smelly place really unfit for habitation.

Ship was nice for relaxing, cards, stage shows. Happy hours were really necessary to keep the spirits up. Food was amply provided and the variety made for good sets. Guest services was helpful when our room issue was unbearable. Made many acquaintances on the cruise which helped us deal with missing the 2 key planned highlights.

Room 1833 was available and a much better quality than that other nightmare. Lots of people caught the a/c hack and remained for the whole cruise. This critique is more or less to ensure that I save someone from the misery called 1964

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom
Cabin H 1964

1904 is horrible. They changed us out after 1 night but only after the ringing in the ears had started.

1833 was nice
