Cabin Number: 5586
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

we were not allowed to board until 2 pm due to many guests with gastro sickness on previous cruise. We did nor leave port until 6 pm.  We were not allowed to serve ourselves until the evening of the ninth day. We had to ask for everything in the buffet.even salt and pepper. Room service which used to be free now is $7.95 per order if you did not order specialty dining before cruise there is now an ala carte menu.

Beds should be turned sideways so we can look out the window. We can't look out the window if the window is behind your head. The cabin steward turned the bed sideways for us.

Ship Tip

There should be more places to smoke. One side of the pool deck should be for smokers like it used to be. Cigar smoking should not be allowed anwhere
