PA system needs improvements!

Sail Date: April 23, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

PA systems needs to be greatly improved.  There were many areas that you could not understand and in some that you did not hear the announcements.  On disbarment in Maryland some areas the announcements were not heard.  When Steve the cruise director was asked if they started calling the desks he said that they were already on 10.  When I said that we were unable to hear the announcements, he said that it was impossible since it was on the emergency PA.  No one in our area heard these "announcements".  He was  RUDE the way he spoke.

When we were waiting to leave the ship in Maryland, the announcements were not heard on the 3rd deck were we were waiting. When I asked Steve the cruise director if they called any decks, he was rude. He said that it was on the emergency PA and it had to have been heard.
