Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Interior Stateroom

Ship is very much understaffed and absolutely not able to offer good cruise for such big number of passengers onboard. Obviously company is trying to save money on all aspects, including food, number of their employees, entertainment variety, and so on.

Dining area on deck 11 is crowded without place to sit, so only way to eat is to take plate outside or in a room.

Automatic hand disinfect dispensers do not work in 90% of time which leads to people not being able to clean their hands and stop spreading bacterias inside buffets. This later led to many people getting sick onboard including myself and members of my family.
