Ship Quality

3 out of 5
ship now showing its age and some of the toilet areas are disgusting The toilets near the kids arcade were both completely blocked for the 1st 3 days of the cruise and i noticed when the cleaner went in all she did was change the toilet rolls , the bins remained full !

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin was as expected and as we had sailed the same ship 11 months ago on a caribbean cruise we knew what to expect , weather was not great so had no use of the balcony
