Sail Date: Mar 2019
Cabin: Ocean View
trying to clear the ventilation in the shower of our cabin... the beginning
workmen from different departments repairing electrical, ventilation, and d
part of ceiling down in our cabin
different equipment outside our cabin used to repair issues..

This was part of a 3 leg repositioning cruise from Australia to Europe ... with hardly any stops on the 13 day leg from Dubai, we transited the Suez Canal without proper narration as to what we are seeing starting at 4 am.

The only other port calls were Athens and Valletta... both stops if you haven't been before were guessing games as the cruise line did not give port information for those wanting to explore on their own.. it's all geared to those taking shore excursions

This cruise had a lot of sick people on board .. it was difficult not to catch whatever was going around. The captain withheld much information about what was going on on the ship and of course sugar coated what little information he gave... of course with 3,000 people you don't want to cause alarm but intelligent people are not sheep..

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Cabin 1N

upon entering this cabin for the first time after 2 previous moves.. I was shocked that they would assign this cabin without checking it out first.. almost everything was broken or not working properly..

I tried to add photos but that feature does not seem to be working here...
