Cabin / Stateroom

Size of the cabin was ok, the shower was far too small, bed was comfy, lighting was excellent. Couldn’t hear any announcements as speaker in cabin wasn’t working. Case turned up late so missed first nights restaurant meal.

Swam with pigs but was disappointed that we could use our camera, we had to purchase the trips pictures at $78 on usb. Very expensive for drinks too.
