Worst cruise ever - being covid negative and being locked in a cabin with a covid positive person - what do you think happened?

This cruise did not start well. The line to board was not something I have ever experienced before - as this was my 15th cruise I had experienced everything from "almost instant boarding" to "wait in line" but nothing prepared us for the more than three hour wait - and we had already done the online check in! The ship was supposed to leave at 4pm, but they hadn't boarded all the passengers or loaded all the supplies, so the problems weren't just with boarding. So for over three hours we stood in line, NO-ONE offered any of us even a drink of water, and judging by the coughing all around us, it was going to be a cruise full of sick people by the time we were done.


Cabin Review


Don't get a forward cabin on deck 4 as you will be above the theatre. Don't expect longer than a two minute shower as your bathroom will flood.
