Review Summary

The ship is in bad shape. It needs a new survey. Overall reconditioning is important at this point. Some of the life boats have damage and would not hold up to use. One had extreme damage to the shaft. The hull needs to be checked for electrostatic damage. Interior needs to be redone. Many of the carpets were dirty and had bad smells.

The cabins need up dating. Changing out the carpet would help. In some cases the carpets were dirty with bad smells.

Swim with the dolpin is great. Dolphin trainer is poor. Other options are good.
