You tell me if you think this cruise worth going for: Room door lock latches are hardly working every time it’s a hassle to open the door with the key card. There are no mattress covers, sheets are going directly onto spring mattresses, which is against all means of hygiene There are 2 floors of entertainment, though one is 70% covered with gambling machines and casino tables where people are actually allowed to smoke at tables, while the smoke goes all over the ship. Another level is more than half facilitated with shops of jewelry, watched and perfumes. As for pharmacy non-prescription medicines, there is none, unless you pay $150 to just to see a doctor, even if you want to only find out if they have any particular medicine onboard. Paid extra $210 to use the spa, but the cooled water and teas have been removed from there without explanation. There is no place on the ship to fill a bottle with drinking water. On every drinking station a sign warning that it’s not allowed. There are no daily water bottles in rooms either, only at $6 for 0.5L in the bar fridge. On the last days of the cruise, we have received a letter saying there is a $15 per person per day charge for services. And nowhere on that note, it explains that the fee is optional. At some ports, it takes hours to stand in a queue to wait for exiting the ship Every onboard radio announcement sounds unclear, for a ship full of foreigners to understand important announcement of someone with very strong accents is impossible. A lot of information is missed. On TV only two channels in English; one is news another is documentary, which repeats over and over. Another channel with movies in different languages, but there are around 5-7 of them and they repeat over every day. Buffets food is repeating itself and no variety of fruits, no fresh berries were during the cruise. As well there was no seafood at any point available in the buffet. .....
