Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
The cabin was great until we left Hawaii then we (and most of the 600 cabins on several decks, were 5 days without a working toilet in our room, 4 of the days were daytime hours about 10am-6pm and 2 nights from 10pm-7am, not expectable and the $100 compensation was a slap in the face for a $6000 cruise we’re we could use the toilet for 1/3 of the cruise.

Ship tip

Get something in writing that the toilets are fixed
