Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Balcony

This ship can NOT. Handle rough seas. Very frightening. Loud banging ceiling falling down. Scary and unpleasant. Mild seas were fine but we hit a significant storm with winds hitting between 43 and 66 kts. And a very roiling sea. This ship felt as though it was going to break apart. Heat and air stopped working.

We had ambulatory assessable room. Plenty of room for ecv. But has step to very small balcony. Room has no chair to sit in. Just two step stool type blocks to sit on. Great for ambulatory handicapped but not for completely wheel chair dependent. Many hallway and corridors too narrow for wheelchairs. Very few handicapped bathrooms. Better to go back to your cabin bathroom.

The layout of the ship is odd. Having to go through Lounges or smoky casino to get to restaurants is weird

Cabin Review


Large enough fir my ecv. Scooter. Ambulatory disabled ONLY

Plastic ceiling cover over lighting fell down in very tough seas.

It’s next to a private obser action deck. Not good when people did I teed. Particularly young teens.

Loud when crew had to access the deck to use the hose. Otherwise quiet room e Celt it’s over the bow and during a very bad storm their we’re coming start loud metal banging noises and the room vibrates like a 8.0 earthquake.
