Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020

the boat was 3 hours late. We got on the boat around 12 pm when we were supposed to be on at 8-9am. We stayed at the port until 6pm with nothing to do you couldn’t smoke or gamble while the ship was docked. They said we were delayed because of a medical issue with a guest. They said we had to turn around.we never left the dock! Oh and we couldn’t eat and the pool and two front jacuzzis were not working because they “hit a storm” coming back and things weren’t working. we left the port at 6pm with half a motor working. They skipped amber cove and only gave us 50$ back. The whole trip was horrible food was awful. Our floor always smelled like diarrhea. We docked on time and they set sail for next cruise! Spend the extra money and get a better ship !
