Many Cutbacks On This Cruise

Sail Date: October 16, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Overall, pretty good.  Found the ship extremely cold.  Not enough music in many areas.  If the 4 pc. combo was accompanying the entertainment of the night, the area (bar) they usually played in was empty.  The gym equipment was not maintained very well.  The staff was excellent.  Cabin was noisy (under Lido Deck).

Cabin / Stateroom
Very pleased with the cabin, except it is below the Lido eating area and tended to be extremely noisy late at night when they were cleaning or setting up for the next day. We complained to front desk and they tried to work with us, but I don't think we would stay in any room below the Lido eating area again. Like the 8th floor (Navigation Deck), but not at that end of the ship.

Liked most of the ports except Samana. Thought that was awful. The ship was very cold in many areas. This was especially true of the Vista showroom. It was freezing. Also, we noticed many cut backs in many areas. Other cruises always had music going on and it was festive. This time, it wasn't
