we were with 3 other couples all looking for laughter. three of us needed walkers or wheelchairs. embarkation was a disaster. no wheel chairs available. we were the last to get onto the boat. we were told we would have easy access. boat itself is no way handicapped friendly! going over seams at doorways were all but impossible. met a very young lady in elevator going to 12th or 13th deck to use the bathroom. as hers wound not accomodate her. dining rooms were only place to have all 8 of us seated together. menus rarely changed. food served tepid even the coffee or tea. we got hot coffee once the entire trip. tea drinkers had to ask for boiling water as what they were originally served was tepid. it took forever for the poor server to run into the kitchen. desserts were beautiful to look at. tasted like sawdust. thank heavens for the fresh fruit! balcony cabin was small with no comfortable seating. husband took the balcony chair inside to use as it was the best for sitting. cabin was kept very clean. there were all kinds of entertainment and activities. the crew were the hardest workers and always had a smile. they all need a raise for what they must put up with.

Toilets did not flush.....

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BC
the crew worker was friendly and worked hard to please. room was difficult to get around. toilet area was so confining if i was 5 lbs heaviesr i would not fit. now if only the toilet would flush every time it was used it would have been wonderful. even the halls were sometimes a bit smelly. worst was when we went to bed, during the night we were awakened by the toilet flushing on its own. the shower was lovely.
the crew workers tried hard to make things easy for us with walkers or wheelchairs.
