Cabin / Stateroom

Everything in the cabin was fine especially our view. It was unobstructed but the constant clanking of the metal door early in the morning (5.30 am to 7.30am) keeps waking us up. We complained only on the last two days and it improved slightly!!!!! Terrible location of this room.

The worst disembarkation of any cruise. Told to wait in the Club Fusion at 9.25am but could only get off the ship at 11.30. After getting off the ship we had to wait nearly 2 hours for Custom clearance. By the time we finished we collected our baggage at around 2pm.
