We all have our priorities. Before you take this Flora adventure – your experience for a life time, make a decision, which is more important to you: working internet or flushing toilets, because you may not get both at the same time.

Am I joking? Yes – just a little, but I got your attention, right?

Gorgeous new boat aside, we felt like we were on a “shake-down cruise” because we were the forth group (of 100) to sail the Flora.

Cabin Review

Sky Suite with Veranda

Cabin S1

• The Stateroom/Cabin. Lovely and well appointed, as expected. But the designers have not, and most likely will not, ever stay in any of these cabins!

o There was creaking and a variety of sounds throughout the night. Light sleepers could find this a problem.

o There were problems with toilets not flushing! Both decks 6 & 5 had problems several times during the week and a couple of times on both decks at the same time.

o The bathroom has a large window to allow for natural light to filter into, which is a nice idea. However, if one sleeping partner gets up in the middle of the night for an aspirin or antacid, turning on the bathroom light wakes up the other roommate. We heard other passengers agree: a curtain on the outside (over bed), would rectify this problem. Another bathroom point: I laughed when I tried to use the special magnifying mirror; but I am not 6 feet 4 inches tall. Very few women will be able to use the fine feature!

o Early in the week we met two passengers who told us how they had a huge problem with water coming out of the shower and flowing into the bedroom area. There was so much water, they had to use all the towels to stop it. One night, we had the same problem on a minor scale; water flowed out of the shower, but we were able to use towels to control it. The ship engineer informed us that the cabin stewards are supposed to clean hair out from the shower drains daily and they just don’t do that. Are they not trained to, or is the drain very difficult to get to?
