Review summary

Overall is was great. Could’ve used more signs and map because the layout is a little confusing. Basic medical needs should be including without extra fee. I needs antibacterial ointment and a band aide and they to wanted to charge me for it. Bandaids and one-time use packets of ointment are not supposed to be for resale. That is wrong.

Food and Dining

The food was pretty decent. Definitely some major fails, but overall pretty decent. The drinks were good.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The karaoke playlist was very limited. I definitely needed updating and more variety. Also needed a top 25 category for ideas or something to that effect.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
The ship layout was pretty confusing. The elevators should’ve had a map posted by them so you could make a better decision on how you want to get around (take stairs if they or close or wait forever for an elevator). The elevators should have a display to show the what floor the elevators is currently now. This would come in handy when you are waiting forever for an elevator and need to make a decision to either wait or take a different elevator or stairs. There needs to be more signs to inform you of where you are going (to the front, to the back, etc)

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Toilet wouldn’t flush and had to be fixed on 2 occasions. Room was a good size and vert clean. Could use Some cosmetic repairs or improvements however. Housekeeping staff was remarkable.

Swam with the pigs. Did not like it and would not recommend. Standing in still water where pigs go to the bathroom is pretty disturbing.
