Disappointing Cruise

In response to review, jgrey says ...

Bumpy. ‚ Not much communication as to efforts to get to Key West because of weather delay out of Tampa. ‚ Demolition of the second pool and huge water slide took place in the middle of the cruise because charter coming up did not want the pool and slide. ‚ Smoke from sixth floor casino was rough. Food, entertainment, housekeeping all excellent.

They demo'd a pool and slide because of a charter ? I find that hard to imagine, unless they intended to remove / replace them anyway. They could have just roped them off.

During the Q&A, Captain Karlsson stated that the Jade was up for charter and the charter party felt the slide and pool took up too much deck space, so slide and pool were demolished mid-week.‚

IDK, sounds like a lot of money to remove the pool and slide just for one cruise and replace it once it's the charter cruise is over.

I didn't know the the Port of Tampa terminal lacked A?C or heat.‚ Wow!‚ How unfortunate that the ship needed to demolish a pool & a slide during a voyage.‚
