Great Ports of Call with Excellent Service

In response to review, CrusinTim says ...

"How in the world could you put 4 people in that room?". A better question would be WHY would you book an inside cabin for 4 people then complain about it being too small??? You've been on 7+ cruises so you should be experienced enough to know better. Don't blame the cruise line, blame yourself!!

It sounds like this cruise did not meet your expectations in many ways.  For me, the itinerary is the most important part of my cruise, and for this at least your were very satisfied.

 Usually the deck plans will tell you the average dimensions of a stateroom.  Since size of the cabin was an important issue for you, check this out before booking your next cruise.  I was once in a cabin where the bed was up against a wall and I had to get off the bed as you did.  Luckily it was a free cruise so I couldn't complain but it was very annoying so I understand how you felt.  Getting passengers'sp hotos of staterooms posted on this site should really help for future bookings.

Thank you for posting a review.

Agree with glomarrone that there is a lesson to be learned - check size of cabin and know what your absolute minimum cabin size is before you book.

WoW!  I have never posted a review for anything before, and now I see why.  I guess this forum is more for people to critique the review than to pass along information regarding the cruise and/or ship.

There were only two of us in the cabin, which was fine as we don't spend much time in there anyhow, so it was merely a comment/review of the cabin.  The cabin also had one bunk and a trundle, so my comment was geared for someone who might book a similar cabin and want it for four people.  

The cruise was fine, ports were great, service very good, old ship but as I said it exceeded our expectations.

Grandinmk, I just booked a cruise for 3 people and your review helped us.  We've never cruised before so your comment was helpful and we booked a balcony since we knew what to ask about space.
