A Disappointment

Sail Date: February 23, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

On the first day out, all the public bathrooms from deck 12 to deck 5 went out. They later repaired them but the sewage stench lasted for days. We had some passengars become serious ill and had to change course for them to be fighted to Hawaii from Christmas Island. Because of this we missed our two days in Maui and spent 5 days sailing around the Pacific until our next port. There were few activities since this was unscheduled and we spent most of the time reading as eating places closed early to preserve food. Not the ships fault unless you count poor planning. We were told it was a 4 star ship. As I said before, a disappointment.

Pros: The Weather

Cons: The Smell
