Review summary

This cruise was to be 5 star.  In reality it was a 4 star restaurant on a 2 star ship.  No AC in the room.  No AC in the gym.  Prehistoric gym equipment.  Missing tiles at the pool.  Green Astro turf from the 70's. No water filtration on board so the clothes went in dirty and came out dirtier. Thank God we never drank the water.  Service on-board however was great. Food was great.

Nice room but no air conditioning. I mean none so they gave us, and many other people, a fan. Obviously the company knows the problem exists otherwise why do they have all the fans ready.
