Great Cruise

Sail Date: January 01, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

The ship appeared to be in good condition for its age. There were staff who always seemed to be wiping hand rails and walls , along with sweeping of the decks.Sometimes language was a problem , especially with the Captain.

Pros: Friendly staff members along with adequate food choices. The help is superior for the wages they are paid.

Cons: the smell of sauerkraut in the hallway of Empress deck and the blatant oder of cigarette smoke from some of the cabins occupied by unsupervised young adult s! !. I wish some of the ofship experiences were geared to those of us over 75 years of age.

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED)? Yes!
