Birthday Cruise

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

Three of us took a cruise to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. We wanted to make our mother's 90th a trip to remember.  She'll remember it, but for the wrong reasons.

Not quite a disaster but not the best either.  Despite being VERY CLEAR to our BJ's travel agent that we wanted a suite with a balcony, we were provided a stateroom with only a porthole.  Very small and uncomfortable with nowhere to turn unless we wanted to sleep on the deck.  The third bed was a "bunk" bed to which we had to climb a ladder to get into.  Not the easiest at our age.


Other than this, the cruise was pleasant with good food and service.


PS. Our cruise agent blamed the cruise line for her error.
