Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Favorite was the casual freestyle as well as the multitude of venues for entertainment and food, however,  O'Sheens meal of the day was an undercooked burger served by a waiter who didn't know the difference between cheddar, American or Swiss cheeses.


 The cabins too small and location of many balconies were horrific...right over the galley of one of the specialty restaurants which provided nonstop banging, clanking all night long, every night, as if it was right in our cabin. We had to change cabins on the 2nd day. 


The Garden Cafe was cramped, crowded, hot and felt very closed in whereas other ships offered a wide open, spacious back end of the buffet in the back of the ship. 


The elevators were snail's pace at best or never came, or just skipped the floor instead of stopping. 


The beds were far from luxurious and soft which matched the bath towels that felt like used sandpaper. 

Cabin / Stateroom
This cabin was directly over the kitchen of one of the specialty restaurants. The banging and clanking sounded like someone was playing drums with a lead pipe on a lead pipe. We had to change cabins due to the unbearable, headsplitting noise all night long. The steward never replaced or cleaned out our used cups/glasses.
