Apparently, being from the Northeast, I was unaware of a delightful thing known as a “swarm of love bugs”. They were positively everywhere. Inside, outside, in staterooms and dining rooms. Some even survived for several days.
Needless to say, the first day was shockingly bad.
I am not sure what could have been done differently, but this was outrageously bad.
Old ship, balcony door required repair during our trip. Bathroom sink made a “bubbling” noise while in port.
Once the bugs died off and were swept away, the balcony was very large.
