Not a good cruise

Sail Date: July 01, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

The health club sauna was not operational at the time of our cuise. In addition, the steam room door would not stay closed, and thus, as the staff themselves admitted, the steam room was not hot enough. The jacuzzis or hot tubs were also only tepid, and sometimes cold. The "adult only" hot tub consistently presented many children. Probably no sign should be posted if the rule is not enforced. I found the "shows" substandard. In my opinion the food is not up to the gourmet standards of even a three-star hotel. The post-dinner entertainment was entirely unsatisfying, since the music lasted only about five or ten minutes before the lights came on and diners were encouraged to leave the room. Room service required a forty-five minute to one hour wait after eleven pm, and there was no mini-bar or refridgerator in the room. No soap or razors or other sundries were provided until the third day. It was not clear that ten dollars a night would be charged for the stateroom steward. In our case the steward did nothing more than turn down the bed. Room cleaning was substandard.

Pros: The casino

Cons: The health club
