Review summary

We in line for 3 hours to check-in, there must be a better way to check-in. When we got on board, the A/C was not working. No TV were available to see if there are any issue on the ship. The hot and cold water mix in the shower were not working, jump in and out of the water spray, The shower door would not close completely. Rarely see the steward vs in the past, we see that person several times a day. We were late to port of call and leave early due to engine issue. They try to cover it up by issue statement that was not correct. No compensation.
