We were extremely worried about this cruise because of the amount of negative reviews indicating that there was sewage smell around the ship. We were relieved to find that the ship did not smell like sewage. Our room, R208, had some slight concerns. There was a slight mildew smell and there was a soft spot on the floor near the bed. Neither ruined our cruise. We would just advise not choosing R208. This was a great value cruise. We knew it wasn't going to have all the bells and whistles. It was 5 days to decompress and the mission was accomplished. I can honestly say there were far more positive things about the cruise then negative. Positive: The ship did not smell like sewage Crew was friendly and hard working While mature, the ship was clean The fellow passengers were lovely Didn't have a bad meal (main dinning and brunch) Comedian Mike Estime had a good clean show The Live Rock Show, had far more hits than misses Complimentary steam room and sauna in the Spa (bring your own flip flops) Negative: Clean comedy is tough, the other comedian resorted to picking on a guy in the crowd Rooms fit 2 comfortably, 3 or more I'd recommend a bunk bed setup

Worried for nothing...
