Poor entertainment and poorly functioning toilets

Sail Date: October 18, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The toilets in the public areas on decks 5 & 6 worked about 30% of the trip.  Many times we had to go back to our cabin to use the toilet.  Also some problems with the toilets on deck 11 aft.  Never had a problem forward on deck 11 near Park Café.   Entertainment was truly terrible.  We saw a couple of good movies the whole week, but none of the live shows were worth the effort.  Food was not bad but nothing spectacular.  Some people don't cook so would find the food great but it just wasn't up to my standard.  Service, especially in the dining room was very good. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Needs a good quality cleaning. Air fresheners only cover up odors from poor cleaning for a short time. Clean the place properly!!!
Destinations and Excursions
Beautiful scenery. Best part of the trip.
Onboard Activities
Are you joking? Seriously. What activities??
Really terrible. Poor quality and unimaginative
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
The My Time Dining is pretty much a joke. We didn't get to chose anything. What is the point???
