Review summary

Felt we should have been compensated for not seeing Victoria, everyone claims it is a must see, $50 ship board credit no way compensated our loss. Felt ship not organized to accommodate the number of passengers, will stick to smaller ships. Handicapped not having access to main theater is a real head shaker., as there were oniy 12 seats.

Tight, stored one suitcase in closet, the second suitcase had to move to access areas of the cabin.

Ship tip
