Least Favorite Cruise by alexiagammage

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

I was very disappointed in this cruise. We did not enjoy our vacation bc of our room temperature. Entertainment could have been better. I think I’m so disappointed bc the two prior cruises we had been on were AWESOME!

Try the formal breakfast at least once on your trip!!

The pizza in the pizza/deli area of the jubilee dining room was excellent. Except for the lounge chair incidents, the crew were A-1 professionals.

Go to the Serenity Deck if you want to escape the noise and activity on the Lido Deck. Get to know the staff... they can make or break your experience.... Go watch the stars on the Lido deck late at night... and awaken early to catch the sunrise!
