Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Bella Balcony Stateroom

We chose because of price and destination. Too many passengers for the staff who did their best to keep up. Rarely was I asked if I wanted coffee after lunch or dinner. Three times no creamer, waiter brought a glass or cup of cream and poured it into my warm coffee. My usual go-to alternative at dinner is salmon. It was small and overcooked. No TV reception-I missed news and sports for 10 days. Felt like steerage not being allowed in many parts of the ship. Drink package was very poor and inconsistent. No outlet near bed for C-PAP. Entertainment was well below other cruse lines. Pizza, pasta and desserts were good.Fruit selection was sparse. One day we got an orange, other days same stuff every day. Ran out of oranges 2 days out. Tissues in room only if you requested but then their supply ran out.. Approximate 3 hour delay at embarkation but no explanation provided. My wife ordered shrimp cocktail at dinner and got 3 small unpeeled shrimp. Sewer smell coming up from shower drain. Smaller entertainment venues were over crowded- could not get a seat any evening. Just too many passengers for the facilities

Cabin Review

Bella Balcony Stateroom

Much smaller than what we were used to for a balcony cabin . While not listed as partially obstructed it should have been because of the line of sight being blocked by the structure of the ship. Approximate 45 degree angle blocked forward and 30 degree angle looking back
