7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 22, 2015
Ship: Nieuw Amsterdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8038
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Cabin conditions unsatisfying. Poor air-conditioning first night. Temperature to warm to be comfortable. Unable to get a good nights sleep. Tried many times to have the air-conditioning to be repaired to make the cabin cooler. Requested a fan to help us sleep more comfortable. Was told there were no fans on the ship. After meeting new friends on board the ship, they requested a fan in our favor. Voila, a fan appears the next day. Can't enjoy a good night outside on the balcony because two cabins ahead of us and one deck below, an old man smokes cigars all night destroying my fresh air off the sea. I have more to complain about but no room to explain. Overall, very unpleased with certain aspects onboard cruise.
