Could have been a great cruise except for the noise volume everywhere.

Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

I've started writing this while still on board with a few days yet to go on our cruise so that everything is fresh in mind, and will finish after we leave the ship.

My wife and I booked a Mini Suite and with it came some special offers which we accepted. Don't feel for a moment that what you are paying for your 'Guest Fare' is anywhere near your total expense. Here what was on our tab.

…..Offer #1 is $50 off on a shore excursion for one – the other has to pay full price. We did find out you can buy the same excursion on shore for quite a bit less than the ship charges for the same thing.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

11th Deck mid-ship is right under the cafeteria restaurant -- so when someone upstairs moves or drags a chair -- you hear it.
