Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is old and looks it. Our cabin was dirty - especially the bathroom which had black mold. The food (except Murano and the Aqua Spa) was dreadful. We never received anything from the captain when the Norovirus appeared on the ship. My husband got it as did many others and was in bed for the remainder of the trip after the Panama Canal. They left him standing in the customs while we waited until everyone was off the boat to retrieve out luggage. There was only one decent lecture series and that was standing room only. Uncle Marty was dreadful. The ship was unclean and so disorganized it was a sad situation. We spent one night just cruising around after the canal. We did not land anywhere and it was rough. No excuses for that. They charged us $25 for a bottle of non-alcoholic wine that we can buy in the store for $4. And on and on it went. Do not cruise EVER on this ship.
