We chose this cruise based on the destination and the advertising. The destination was perfect. The advertising was a lie.
We were told the ship would be at a berth totally different from where, after one hour of research, we finally found the ship.
We were not welcomed on board except by one surely individual who demanded we surrender our passports. That's it. No one to assist or direct us or even say, "hi."
The hall carpets were well worn and dirty looking.
When we finally found our "first class" cabin, we were amazed by how cheaply it was decorated and how old it all looked. Somewhere between an old folks home and a motel 6. We paid top dollar for this cabin and cruise but nothing came even close to third class standards.
The public spaces were similarly shabby and unappealing. There were two gathering spaces plus the dining facility and both were old and run down. They faced forward through large windows which were so dirty one could not see through them.
The top deck was a mess -- a jumble of furniture and equipment.
Upon returning to our cabin, we reserved a hotel on land, retrieved our passports and departed. Our money was forfeited but there was no way we were going to spend 10 days on this mess of a ship.
Unless you're traveling with a large group of individuals who don't care, do not travel on this ship.
Though we chose the first rate cabin on the ship, it was worse than a 30 year old Motel 6. The windows were filthy and the cabin, though large, smelled. Just like Motel 6 we were well supplied with paper and plastic cups for drinking. The bathroom was old and unkept. This was no place to live for 10 days.
