Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Inside

We were able to get on the ship in literally less than 10 minutes. The ship was pretty clean, but there was trash and empty glasses that were left out on regular occasions.

O’sheehans staff was rude and on two different dining occasions we had to find a manager to get drink refills.

The specialty restaurants were ok, but La Cucina was horrible on this cruise.

The dining was as usual average and you had to beg for tea refills, and then wait 30 minutes for the refill"

We skipped the shows because they did not appeal to us. The Asian band was super loud and sounded horrible singing Elvis.

The streaming internet was horrible and would not stream.

The ship caught fire towards the end of the cruise, where over the pa around midnight someone yelled, “BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO” twice within 20 minutes. We then had to skip Dubrovnik and return to Venice,

This would have been a good cruise if the ship would not have caught fire and broke down.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside

This was a roomy nice cabin with the exception of the nasty bathroom. The shower pan was rusted and there was mold all over. We had to stand on towels when in the shower and bath to keep the funk off of our feet. Reminded me of a truck stop bathroom. I will upload the pics so you see what I mean,

Horrible. They didn't have enough jeeps and was totally disorganized.
