Review summary

This cruise ship smelled of marijuana in the cabin areas / common halls many times. Could not enjoy the balcony on many occasions due to this. The ports were nice, but expensive and still recovering from hurricane damage . Not a good variety of food offerings - food often lacked flavor and the lines were long. Had a very rude Pizza staff person. A couple of medical emergencies. The amount of violin playing in the lobby was insane - reminded me of the titanic. Did not feel the "fun" on this ship. Not that the cruise was terrible - it just was not my favorite.
