Sail Date: Sep 2019

I have never been on such a disorganized cruise that lacked vital communication. Despite the fact that engine trouble caused us to miss 2 ports and be stuck in the dock, most of the crew was brand new, only began 2 weeks prior and it didn’t seem they had much training. The food was 5 out of 10; a great disappointment. If you like being lectured, that was the primary entertainment although a Mark Twain imitator was a very good storyteller. Our suite was very nice and the highlight. On and off was easy. Even though the food was lackluster, I liked the idea that we could order 1/2 orders. I am a light eater and hate to waste food so saw this as something other cruise lines would be smart to emulate. The decor in the public areas is beautiful and comfortable, however, when it rained, none of the cushions were removed from the rain therefore they were “unsittable” for quite some time.

Cabin Review

Beautiful, comfortable beds, lovely windows all around. Good wifi. No one told us but we discovered a vcr connected to the tv and, again, lack of communication, there were cd ‘s in the library one could borrow. Speaking to others who have sailed with ACL before, none of them knew this. Nice small frig in room.
