Overall terrible experience. Upon arrival we are told that the first stop on Koror was cancelled. We were given no notice beforehand. Talking to travelers from the month before it appears they knew about this in advance. Instead we stent one full day in the shop with not much to do. The pool is way undersized for the ship so really crowded. Long lines for most things. We never spent more the 6 hours in any location which is definitely not enough for most islands we visited. WiFi is overpriced as expected but also terribly slow and unreliable The worst though is the noise at night. We got one of the nicer rooms on the 11th floor and the noise from the parties at the pool was unbearable. It went on until midnight or even 1 am. They advertise these rooms as ideal for families but my kids could not sleep until 1 am which made them very difficult to deal with the next day. Staff is nice but this ended up been a very expensive vacation which felt like a stay at an Holiday Inn.

Way too many unpleasant experiences for an expensive vacation
