Auditorium was too small for this Hugh Ship. Missed out first two days because was full 30 minutes before show. Had to miss fine dinning in order to make show deadlines. A real problem

Ship Quality

Easy to navigate this big ship. Workers were always trying to wipe down common areas. Norus Virus last 3 days put a hamper on getting around.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
"" didn't tell us this room was direct adjacent to The nighttime music Venues. Thanks to the Hotel Manger they moved us to 4201 which was a great move. We didn't get to sleep until midnight 1st night the base drum went a Boom-Boom-Boom for hours on end.. We are in our 70s so staying up late is not for us anymore. He is terrific manager.

Ship tip

Check out where your room is located and if you like to go to bed at a decent hour get a rookm away forom the music venues.
