Great Itinerary, poor vessel

Sail Date: February 15, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

A tired ship with sparse, but friendly staff. Great rooms, but common areas worn and dated. The spa pool was surrounded by fake greenery and covered with dust. The pool was very small and deck chairs were hard to find. The bathrooms were not maintained regularly and the stores on board had display cases with tattered stands. The dining room was lovely, with great service, but the food just okay. The first nigt they showed a movie of the Royal Caribbean experience and most of the experiences they showed were not available on the this ship. We were told that the ship will be refurbished in a couple of years, but the price should reflect what you get. After many cruises, I will head back to princess or Celebrity.
