The smoking was impossible for me and I had to be on benadryl except when off the ship. This meant headaches, weepy eyes and sinuses. Could not walk my daily miles because of smokers; could not read quietly because of noise; even the library was somewhere that people went to chat quietly OR crowded with people noisily signing up for something or other. Spa was excellent -- but had to pay $20 for a quiet place. Cabin staff best -- most helpful and kept things very clean. Had to use cafeteria because of smoking on dining room floor so it was pretty noisy. Children's activities seemed great -- would have taken twin grandsons on this very tour except can't handle smoking. Staff not very helpful about off shore information. Library very limited selection and books are locked away except for a few hours a day.
Sail Date: November 01, 2009
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Pros: Itinerary -- we were able to visit fabulous wonders of the world
Cons: smoking permitted in cabins and deck. Smoking heavy in casino which was open and on same floor as the only two free dining rooms making it almost impossible to dine anywhere but the cafeteria. Ship incredibly noisy -- very loud music which meant people were shouting over the noise.
