Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Interior

I understand that nickle-and-diming guests is core to the cruise business now, but making drinking water hard to come by is unconscionable. Staff wanted a $9 value drink ticket for a bottle of water, or would stand there and pour it into a cup for free. The only drinking fountain is hidden in the gym, with a 'no bottle filling' sign.

Added one star to review because everything else was very good. Dining options for a gluten sensitive person were offered or available.

Kid activities look good ( but were unutilized for this music-themed cruise).
