We have been on prob 8-10 cruises in the past. The last two cruises were on the larger ships. We were very dissapointed with the last two esp. but this last cruise was very dissaponting. Cigarette smoking is everywhere. One esp stupid place for a smoking lounge is beside the ships main swimming area. Then the casino,, where we don’t gamble,, then in the h2o adult place for the hot tubs. The smoke is sooo thick you cannot breath. Anyone with breathing problems or asthma would be in dire danger on this ship. And electric cig smokers are everywhere thinking that their smoking doesn’t matter. And no one ever stops them ,, the drunk passengers were crude and angry constantly,, the buffet is very crowded and loud the savour restaraunt is nice but there is usually a waiting line and sooo noisy and small the staff have very inadequate aisles to walk in and extremely inadequate and small rooms to prep food and take dishes. While directly across the entrance from the savour is the taste restaurant that they must save for special guests Bc even tho we went there many times in 7 days they were never open for regular guests to eat there,,,, The shows were not for decent moral people after about 8 pm if it lasted that long. The shows were often filled with vulgar language and seemed to be promoting the lgtb lifestyle intensely,,, There were a couple of small music groups that were good. But after going to the dueling piano show and by 9 pm they started saying the show wd be over 18 by 9,,, and it was already getting vulgar,,, makes you wonder,,, There was no place to get away from the cig smell. Our room was a window room ,, view was nice but the noise at night over our room was horrible must hv been tables or something scratching and moving over and over,, We often had to walk up stairs Bc elevators were not fast at all Internet is slow or not working well I guess the best part was meeting some of the international workers They are underpaid under appreciated and often mistreated by the entitled drunk guests. Also Our embarkation and debarkation was the worst out of all our cruises. We got the pkg deal with air n transport n tickets n three dinner pkg n internet Only one of the three dinners was good. It’s just not worth it

Disappointed

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Stateroom with Large Picture Window
Cabin OB
Nice ,,,last cruise we had a balcony and the people were all smoking on their balconies n I cdnt breath. I’ll never get a balcony again
The best part of our room was the steward We tried to be extra gracious to him.
