Cruise Review

Room Type: Inside

Poor communication of schedule changes.  I understand it takes time to make decisions when plans are required to change but guests should at least be advised that decision making is in process. It was nearly 10:00 am before we were aware we may not get to go to Catalina.  Entertainment was poor, especially since we were confined to the ship every day but one.  Some sort of back-up plan should be in place to help compensate when guests are not going to be able to go to a scheduled location.  The majority of people will not, and did not, participate in activities that require extroverted behavior.   Such a nice theatre, why not play more movies?  Christmas movies would have been a great choice. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Toilet clogged on first try. Beginning day 2 cabin smelled of stale cigarette smoke. Staff was advised; they said it was the ventilation system. Day 4 woke up with a cough and sore throat and then went to guest services. They sent a "supervisor" who said she could not smell it yet ordered some sort of air purifier device. The device helped
