Our state room had marks on the wall and looked dirty. We had a problem with rust coming out the air vent.

Cabin / Stateroom

We were eligible for an upgrade, however we were passed over because we chose a room to make sure we had a good one. Our United Agent didn't tell us that, and the only way we could upgrade was to pay $600a more, although our ship wasn't full. Cabin was nice overall, but we had a problem with black rust coming out the air vent for a couple of days. And the walls appeared dirty with marks on them.

Ship Tip

I enjoyed the quietness with more seniors on board.

We took the Anne of Green Gables tour. The countryside was lovely and walking along the paths at the Green Gables home was refreshing with side streams and delicious smells.
