Room Type: Suite

This ship is recalling showing its age.  Our mattresses were basically a set of box springs.  They covered it with three blankets to try and soften it.  It didn't help. The blankets were as thin and worn out as the pillows, also very hard.  So if you want a comfortable bed, bring your own pillow top and pillows.  Our toilet stopped working mid cruise. Maintenance said the ship was having plumbing problems.  It worked the rest of the cruise about half the time.  The food in Wndjammer was great on the first day, but thereafter the quality went downhill and was almost always the same variety. The main dining room food was cold. Shrimp cocktail was comprised of baby shrimp, the kind you find in a salad. Order multiple so you at least get a taste. The only great thing on the ship was the cruise director, Casey. Very funny guy.

Sprinkles ice cream on deck 11 was great. Dine on level 3 for breakfast; food is better and you can order off the menu.
