Enjoyable cruise

Sail Date: June 06, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Other than high vibration in the stateroom from the engines causing severe lack of sleep, the overall voyage was very nice. We were upgraded to a balcony room and the room itself was very good. However, we we in a peculiar zone of high resonance which resulted in constant vibration. The bed vibrated, likely caused by the engines, making it very difficult to sleep. The first two nights were so bad we had to move to a different stateroom to sleep. The room next to us vibrated as well. We were compensated $80 for the discomfort which was, in my mind, a token gesture and very inadequate. I will be very cautious of accepting a room anywhere in the back end f the boat before testing for vibration.

Pros: Scenery

Cons: Other than high vibration in the stateroom from the engines causing severe lack of sleep, the overall voyage was very nice.
