Uneventful experience on the ship, not very many activities and not a great cruise director.

Review summary

We were given an 11:30 check in and we waited so long we didn’t get on the ship for 2 hours. The 5th floor smelled like a sewer. Everyday we would have to soak up water from the bathroom floor because the water didn’t stay in the shower.
