Sail Date: Aug 2021
Cabin:

This ship is a refurbished Royal Caribbean ship that is in need of more refurbishment. My trip felt like more of a ferry ride, with passengers embarking and disembarking at many of the ports. There were very few Americans on board. While the cabin attendants were excellent, the rest of the service was definitely lacking. It was difficult to have our bread and water refilled in the dining room, almost impossible to get a drink in the buffet, and difficult to find a table in the buffet. Additionally, the food was definitely subpar. The meats were inedible and nothing was seasoned correctly. Breakfast in the dining room was very good, however. The shore excursion desk gave me the wrong information several times about my ability to take one of the excursions, and I was given no reason for an excursion not taking place.

On the plus side, the ports of call for the most part were interesting and it was easy to navigate around the ship because it is on the smaller side.

Cabin Review

The bathroom is extremely small but adequate for 1 person. The tile needs replacement, as does the carpet. There was no room for my luggage under the bed, so it had to roam throughout the room and be moved to get to the dressing table.
