Review Summary

There was a fire the first night, evacuated from my room. The air did not work well. Speaker did not work at all. Food was not very good. They switched our port days because of boat issues and could not go max speed. Our times at each port was cut very short. The pool was very small and salty. Bathrooms and elevators would be out of service for periods of time. Very disappointed with the overall experience.
