We chose this as it was to be a discovery expedition, which in reality it wasn’t. The ship itself wasn’t completed. The cabins weren’t ready of finished, the decks outside were still being finished and had contractors working night and day. Issues with machines in laundry, gang planks weren’t working, the list goes on . There wasn’t enough seating at the buffet at breakfast and lunch, also they needed a buffet for the evening for those that didn’t want to go to dinner every night. Also need more variety in the restaurants. No wardrobe space for hanging clothes. TV was hard to work also hard to see because your reflection was visible in the mirrored screen, you also couldn’t see it from bed. Paid premium price for a mediocre cruise. Could not fault the staff though they all worked hard to try and give everyone a pleasant stay. The excursions were not well thought out, not enough space on Whale watching ship for everyone, also not enough wet weather gear to go around. Looked forward to this cruise for the past three years and was disappointed from the time they delayed the boarding until the time we disembarked.

Extremely Disappointed
