Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin:

It was visiting some of the places I’d never been.

The first day we were given our key and we went to our room and it smelled mouldy. Over the first 15 days we were moved from cabin to cabin 6 times. We finally had enough and visited the Hotel director. After making it clear that we had had enough of the moving around the ship, and forcefully requesting an upgrade, we were given a balcony cabin with no more issues. The ships aircon didn’t work, the plumbing was leaking in the rooms and spilling sewerage on the floors. People were being moved around to different cabins because of these issues and we were too. One lady was charged $1000 for an upgrade to get out of the room she was in due to problems with it.

Although most of the food is cooked ok, it is always the same and no variety.

Cabin Review

Cabin was ok once we moved 7 times, other wise there were a number of issues. Air con hot cooling in cabin and around the ship, hot water either none or Luke warm. Toilets spewing sewerage all over the floor of the bathrooms in many cabins. Room smelling of mould, I believe water trapped under the carpet.
