Review summary

From start to finish we had a wonderful time! From meeting the extremely attentive Romeo, our stateroom attendant, to new friends we met at dinner and on excursions, to the weather at each port of call. This was a fabulous cruise!

The Winner's Club Casino

Too smokey! The group of 40 or so chairs and tables in the center of the casino is an area where smokers hang out. But the ventilation is terrible and makes it very uncomfortable for those that don't smoke. I'm a non smoker but expect it in casino's, having an extra area filled with smokers in the center of the casino makes it far worse. On a positive note; the staff are wonderful and a lot of fun! The host Petra is a gem!

The balcony on our cabin 7108 had paint chips all over the furniture and deck. And rust was very apparent. The ventilation in the casino is awful. One of the major culprits is the bar with a large area for smokers that don't even play in the casino.
