Review summary

Ship was old and outdated. Not sure if stabilizers were in use as the boat shifted and moved all over sea. Not good. Rooms were noisy and their was poor planning in the design of ship. Engineers placed cabins adjacent to places where live and very loud music pulsated through the room. Should have thought that through a bit more. We moved cabins only to find the new location was worse! Yikes. Very frustrating.
