Review SummaryFood was good, ship was nice however there are quite a few cons.
First, the rooms are tight. We had a balcony room and it was tough to move around. Hated that there wasn't an actual bathroom. The toilet was in its own vestibule where all noises (sorry!) we're heard loud and clear by your mate. Shower was separate (in another vestibule) and the sink was at the foot of the bed. Awkward!
Bed was short. My husband is 6'2" and his feet were hanging off every night. The crew wasn't as friendly as you would expect. Lots of extra charges on the ship. We have only cruised with Norwegian and therefore we didn't initially realize this however we met lots of experienced cruisers who said it was their worst experience cruising because of all the extras. Cover charges for specialty restaurants, room service fees, charges for juices, etc. God forbid you could get a chair by the pool (which was tiny!). It's the first time I went on vacation to the Caribbean and didn't get much of a tan because I couldn't find one lounge chair to lay on.
The final disembarkment was disorganized ad hectic.
