disappointed

Room Type: Balcony

This was a trip that i organized for 4 different couples. I was terribly disappointed from the moment i stepped into check in for the cruise. I have cruised before and some of the group had as well...we knew what a good/great cruise should be-this wasn't it. Even where you check in is old and dated.
Once we got on board-the ship is OLD and dirty. The first thing that greeted us was railing falling off the walls of the ship-(this is a safety rail). 3 decks were partially roped off with caution tape and unusable--they were sun decks. (one eventually opened as was usable...day 3 of 4) We got to our room and were pleased to see a bottle of wine, cookies and chocolate covered strawberries...i thought that was a nice touch, but soon found out it couldn't make up for the cruise ahead of us. There is So much to tell, but to summarize--the fine dinning wasn't even adequate- & this is an additional charge of $25/per person per meal. The rooms are small and in bad shape, the ship is in bad shape, the food wasn't very good, nor did they have a good selection, the entertainment wasn't very entertaining and the islands they stop at are not worth stopping at except for Nassau. Our room had no hot water on day one and my mother in law's room didn't lock and they couldn't fix it or mover her. My uncles safe had to be drilled out and replaced. The staff, however was very nice, but not as responsive as I've had on other ships--rooms weren't well cleaned and it was a challenge to get service at the pool & pool bars, as well as in the specialty dining areas. Please, if you have options on 4 day cruises don't select this ship or even this itinerary.
