Never Again

Sail Date: March 01, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

My traveling companion smokes. We found this to be the most restrictive atmosphere for smokers ever experienced. Smokers are only allowed to smoke while at the bar. This is not conducive to social behavior nor to a relaxing experience.
Also, the children's video game room inside the casino is the worst arrangement I have ever seen.
In addition, the evening entertainments were poorly scheduled and badly managed. For instance, once you heard one set from a musician grouping, you had heard their entire repertoire. Enjoying an evening, or enjoying several evenings in a particular locale was not possible.
The cabin steward and dining staff were excellent. The dining staff was especially attentive and went above and beyond their duties to ensure a pleasant time was had by most diners.

Pros: The ship steward and the dining stewards.

Cons: The overall laissez faire attitude of the crew.
