This was our tenth cruise, and by far and away the worst.

Most of the common toilets in the ship didn't flush and of the people that we went on the trip with, their cabin 's didn't work for most of the trip.  Our friends floor kept flooding and they couldn't make it stop and wouldn't change the cabin or fix the leak.  The entertainment, if you would call it that, was not fit for a Holiday Inn, which when there are 3 sea days built into 11 days, entertainment is important.

When problems came up and we went to speak with the Pursers office, they actually rolled their eyes!

When you add in the cost of the crusie with the cost of the flights, we spent in excess of $15,000 dollars just for the two, which is a great deal of money for way below standard returns.

What a hustle unless you want to buy a rug! The Grand Bizarre is like a flea market!

The ship was 2 hours late which left very little time to do anything, but what we saw was amazing!

Exciting place and people. Maybe the cleanest big city we have seen!
