A fabulous itinerary, but an aging vessel.

Sail Date: December 07, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

In the 'home' port of San Juan, unless you are hispanic, you are ignored!!  And, some of these very rude folks sail with the ship too!!  You spend a week being elbowed out of their way, and listening to their screaming in the hallways and on the elevators.  Such a putrid time on board.

The bathrooms couldn't be smaller if they tried!  The beds were horrible - just like sleeping on a board.  Had to ask for some softer relief.

Very difficult to read their daily 'newspaper'.  Everything haphazzardly placed - no organization.

Very loud bands in the Centrum nightly til after 12:30AM - good luck sleeping - even on the 8th. floor!!!

Food tried to be "fancy" - wound up only fair, most nights.  The worst Lobster I've ever had. (Actually, couldn't  eat it.)
