Review summary

For those booking or who are booked on the Koningsdam- TAKE WARNING! We just got off and had major problems with our cabin. If you are booked in a mid-ship balcony cabin on decks 1, 3, 4 and 5 you will not be able to go to sleep prior to 11:30PM. These cabins are affected by the BB King Jazz Club on decks 2 and 3. The Base guitar and the drums are very loud and the vibration from these will shake your cabin and bathroom. The glasses in our bathroom were dancing and clattering to the vibrations. Place a washcloth under them to protect them. After speaking to Customer service and the person in charge of Housekeeping, we found out that when the ship was in Dry Dock for refurbishing, they neglected to put insulation to prevent this from happening. If you can change your cabin to forward or stern cabins, you will not have this problem. Also, if you go to sleep after 11:30 PM, you will also not be affected by this. Also, we found the entertainment to be terrible with virtually no production shows and a fair comedian. We this was our 92nd cruise and one of our worst. The ship is magnificent and beautiful but this is a serious problem.
