Review summary

All handrails should be sanitized on a regular basis. My husband had to use the handrails whenever we used the stairs and I'm sure this is how he contracted the norovirus. Afterwards my husband purchased surgical gloves to use for the rest of the cruise. I did not see crew cleaning certain areas of the ship like I have on other cruises. Several handrails were dirty. Several public restrooms showed mold along the floor boards. We did wash our hands continuously and used hand santizier afterwards

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

We used the buffets all the time so we wouldn't have to dress up. Had a variety of foods; not much green vegetables (Except salad and raw veg). It was comparable to other cruise line that we used....nothing spectular.

Onboard Activities

Trivia, which was most of what was available.

I thought the band (Pinnacle) that was used all the time was lousy. Shows were ok.

We were assigned a room that had bunks includes. Had to rearrange room to avoid hitting our heads on the folded bunks.

Wait until after it is refurbished (going into dry dock soon).
