Sail Date: Mar 2023
Traveled with children

I traveled with my family(husband, 3 kids, sister, nephew and mother) we were in 3 different cabins and they could not accommodate us to be closer together, we were all in completely opposite sides of the ship. I was surprised to find out everything was additional (restaurants, coffee, drinks child sitting). Overall disappointed and surprised at the lack of entertainments. Needless to say the 4 days at sea were not pleasant and boring.

summarizing my experience: Dirty sheets with blood stains, sheets smelled like damp, pretty sure it had bed bugs, the bathroom door was falling off and swinging from side to side, the food was terrible, any other options was additional money. The lights in my bathroom were flickering all night it looked like a night club. I had to babysit the charges because i was getting charged incorrectly. There was barely any activities for kids and adults. Overall terrible experience and to top it off they lost my mom's luggage.
