Bimini was the highlight and service was great, but a lot of negatives!

Sail Date: Jan 2022
Cabin: Spa Balcony

This was my first ever cruise, so I understand that I don’t have anything to compare but I wanted to write a review from my perspective. First we’ll start with our cabin:

1. We booked cabin deck 10, balcony right by the spa.

2. The cabin was spacious as was the balcony. The bathroom was small and wouldn’t be very comfortable or even accessible to someone that was larger than an average height / weight.

Cabin Review

Spa Balcony

1. We booked cabin deck 10, balcony)right by the spa.

2. The cabin was spacious as was the balcony. The bathroom was small and wouldn’t be very comfortable or even accessible to someone that was larger than an average height / weight.

3. Our specific cabin was located near the elevators, but this wasn’t a problem at all. There is a housekeeping closet across the hall which was really noisy and the cabin can be connected to the neighboring cabin, so we heard about every bit of conversation from our neighbors.

4. The balcony door was annoying! A couple of nights we hit rough seas with high winds above 40knts and the door was rattling, the wind was whistling through the cracks of the door, and the furniture was banging up against the door on our last night which made it almost impossible to sleep. I had to stuff washcloths in the cracks of the door to try to keep it quiet.

5. The air conditioning was out for our entire cruise without us knowing it. We just thought cruises weren’t ventilated well, but no we just needed to call maintenance which apparently every cabin on our row had no air conditioning.
