Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Inside

Chose cruise based on itinerary, date and price. Our inside cabin 11579 was little more than a closet. No chair or anywhere to sit except bed. I was embarrassed as friends could not visit as No standing room either. No bathroom ammenties included and the worst toilet tissue ever, we bought our own. We felt like second class persons on this cruise while many of our friends enjoyed upgrades to luxury balconies and suites despite paying little or no more than us.

Complimentary dining choices were good but uninspired. No outdoor deck eating except dried out burgers and dogs. No pizza except the cold, hard stuff on Buffet. Buffet was pretty much the same thing everyday; just ok. We loved eating and drinking in O'Sheehans pub.

Crew and all staff very friendly and professional. Our room steward, Bernard, was excellent. Entertainment was very good. Enjoyed the variety of performers and comedian. The signature presentation, Elements, was Broadway worthy.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside

Smallest cabin I have ever seen. Little more than a closet. Only place to sit was on the bed. Made me feel like a second class cruiser, embarrassed for anyone to visit me.
