Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2011

Checking in and off the ship was a breeze. I had expected a bigger hassle.

The amount of smoking on this vessel is certainly a big negative. Given that most Americans don't smoke, and some are allergic, one would think that the smokers would be to confined to at least half the public places. It was difficult to find a smoke free locale outside of the dining areas.

The goal of the ship is for everyone to be having "FUN" every minute of the day. The louder the music and encouragement, the more fun we must be having. Every bar excepting one I could find was so loud as to make conversation impossible. The bass is so loud one can feel it in the chest, thumping, thumping, thumping. I found that wax earplugs, when attending the shows created an amplification level which was tolerable. Mind you all, I'm old, not deaf!!! I seriously suggest passengers carry ear protection to avoid possible injury to hearing.

Cabin Review

Cabin 5A

I lucked out and had a cabin just at the forward elevators. Being handicapped, it was truly a good thing. My cabin was large enough, clean and well kept. I have no complaint about my accomodation.
