This ship needs to be retired

Sail Date: July 01, 2006

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

I sailed on this ship July10-14. This was my seventh cruise and my 1st with Royal Caribbean and my last. I knew this was an old ship and I saw it had been refurbished. Idid not expect it to compare to the new ships. However I did not expect to smell sewer in the bathrooms and halls. This smell was throughout the decks. We were a group of approx. 50. Some of the bathrooms
we could hear bubbling as if the toilet was going to overflow. Numerous complaints were made but the smells were still there. The carpet in the hall
were also wet and stained. This was awful. I will never take a chance on one of
your ships again.

Pros: entertainment and food

Cons: The bathrooms and hall had a smell of sewer
