Review summary

We had a wonderful time with minimal complaints. I booked 4 rooms for this cruise with expectations with no problems. My daughters room seemed smaller compared to ours and they had 3 people-her room very warm brought 2 fans did not work and steward did not bring another, they asked if room could be switched were told this is the room your mother picked and you will be charged if moved. So they comped them dinner to the italian restaurant, my father was stuck in hot stuffy elevator for 20 mins. Buffet lines too long in morning so we ate at dining room which was fabulous and not enough variety at lunch buffet nor late night options.
