Review Summary

Very disappointing. Cramped cabin and impossibly small bathroom. 6'2" husband could not bend over to wash his feen. Modern sink useless--too small, faucet in bad position, very little water pressure. Worst feature were the expensive charges on everything--read reviews after the cruise and phrase "nickeled and dimed to death" was used constantly by others, just as it was in our group. If it were not that one of this group was of Indian extraction, we would have had many difficulties. We were 10 travelling together and their facilities did not extend to this. We always had to move tables (round tables for 4 are not ideal when put together for 10). The amenities on the ship were nil--no library! Just several shelves with outdated books in several foreign langueges and some English books of no interest at all. No good place to do a picture puzzle (days at sea in the rain). Not enough seating in the theater and movies were few and outdated. Food in dining room was bland, with few choices, and usually cold. One dinning room entre arrived without being heated at all! Windjammer had better choices, better taste but also always cold. Howefver, the staff (except for guest servic es) was helpful and friendly. except for one young man at guest services, who was patronizing and condesc ending. All in all, could have been better. I've traveled on 6 different cruise lines, and this was the worst.
