Sales Pitch

Sail Date: August 23, 2015

Reviewed: 11 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Everything on the ship was about selling or charging.  There was a channel and live shows 24/7 about buying at the ports.  Half of the boat itinerary had to do with the spa.  Another 25% was activities for a fee, like bingo.  The free activities that had prizes were mocked by the staff due to the cheapness of the prized, keychain, pen , bag.

The ice skating rink was open 1 day for 4 hours

The shows were second rate


Cabin / Stateroom
couldn't use balcony because when you opened the door all the doors in the room flew open hurting occupants in the room and the room whistled, so loud it was heard in the hallways
