Disappointing - cabin size, ubiquitous PEANUTS, smoking in casino.

Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Standard Interior Stateroom

We chose this cruise as a ticket home, in a more interesting way than a plane ride, after sailing around the Mediterranean on a Norwegian ship (Spirit). The NS is ostensibly a beautiful ship with a musical theme. I had a budget room on a repo cruise and did not expect the world. The cruise was ultimately very average and frankly mostly boring.

We couldn't attend too many bars or areas due to the prevalence of PEANUTS in every bar, in every night time chocolate and due to the potential for cross contamination - frankly everywhere.

I offered to leave the ship and fly home and was offered ZERO compensation to do so.

Cabin Review

Standard Interior Stateroom

Way too small - for one person it would be small. For my son and I - way beyond cramped.
