Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The main dining room daily dinner menu's did not appeal to us. We only ate in the main dining room twice on this cruise. The food in the buffet was pretty good and the variety was better in the buffet

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
The air conditioning on this ship is poor. We had our thermostat on the lowest setting throughout the cruise and the temp was too warm for us. The first night it was so warm we could not sleep. We complained, I they were able to make a slight improvement but still much warmer that what we are accustomed to on other ships we have been on. Even the public areas were warm, so I think it is an overall system capacity problem.

Ship tip

I will avoid this ship in the future or cruise on the Coral only in cool weather climates like Alaska.

Disembarkation

Poor scheduling of our disembarkation tour. We had to be in our meeting room at 7 am. but the ship was not scheduled to be in port until 7 am so it was nearly 8 by the time they were ready to let us off the ship.
