We were stranded in port for 4 days without ever receiving any logic reason form anyone, except that it was the Port Authories fault.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The service staff in the dining room was great, the maître-de very poor. The food was good except for the last evening when my wife has a terrible reaction (food poisoning?) to the soup.

Cabin / Stateroom

The air conditioning did not work for the first 36 hours, we could not shut the veranda's swinging door (it took the room Stewart 5 tries and then it would not open. During heavy seas one night our cabin floor was floored.

the ship was 2 hours late arriving at the dock, so they try to unload the ship all at once and it was pure cacus. By the way this too was not the ship captain fault.
