Review summary

Boat was great, however we were woken up at 4am each night of our cruise (except 1) with the sound of crashing dishes or dumping/dragging silverware.  We complained to two people, they came up to investigate, couldn't discover where it was coming from.  Called the customer service multiple times, even at 4am when it happened, but since it only happened for a couple minutes each night they couldn't determine the cause either.  My wife's mother just passed away and we were trying to enjoy some relaxation time.  Instead, we got hardly any sleep, were groggy during the days and basically told that we were "lying" about noises by the service desk.  We paid extra for the nicer accomodations and were not offered any sort of comfort or compensation for the mess they would not fess up to.  Horrible experience.
