Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Inside Stateroom

Cabin size was not so bad for two people

BUT

- there is a sound underneath or on the side of your walls that is like flowing water

- loud flowing water like gushing in

- and just every night it woke us up

- it's not the toilet from the next door, it's a like a big gush of wave going through underneath the floor or on the side of the wall

- also, sometimes that flush in the toilet doesn't work

- and one day, all the toilet didn't work in our floor

===

our cabin steward "Muhamed", was awesome

When we were going to Sweden, I asked one of the Deck 4 staff if they accept US$ in Sweden, the answer given was, I don't know as I have never been to Sweden. there were two of them who can't answer a basic question. They are not deck hands, they are actually crew that's stationed by the stairway on Deck 4 before going to the Port Security, and Port Security didn't know either, and there was not notice on the daily bulletin. Wish you could staff those areas with more knowledge of the city we are visiting

====

The waiters on our last night at Tropicana Room, are, hands down, awesome !

- starting from the Manager - Ivan - there were 19 of us, and we ahve earlier requested with our reservation 2 long tables of 10. We got to our reservation early enough so that we can be seated to our tables, but as it turns out, the tables are not ready because one table, the guests was just beginning to order dessert, that's understandable.

- Ivan, started with 3 square tables put together, for 10 people (squished in) and a round table of 8

- then another square table came open, he then added it, then another one

- to the point that we were able to accommodate 14 of us in a long table

- and 5 in the round table

- perfect night

- it was my wife' birthday too, so the waiter sung and surprised her with a cake and candle blowing

- the singers, Funky Duo, greeted my wife twice

- plus we had wine and bottle of Champagne from our Travel Agent for her birthday

- but the champagne was warm, so "Gede", assistant Manager, replaced with a cold one

- it was a great last night dinner for all of us

===

Special mentions to other waiters

- at Wasabi Bar - Gary (waiter) , Stephan (chef)

- Deepa, at Savor and Moderno, not only did she recognized and greet me everytime, she was even able to pass on a message to my brother at the restaurant. She is of greet asset, very diplomatic, very nice, and a great dining hostess
