Review summary

If not for the location of the stateroom and the lack of responsiveness of the maintenence staff, i would have had a great time.  we had an interior large stateroom by design.  we wanted a quiet room that minimized sea motions.  the room we had 1031 had something above us that went on until 2 am.  being a light sleeper, i didn't get a good night's sleep from day 2 on.  Someone next door blew a cuircit and we lost our TV and plugs.  I called two times starting at 8 am then at 1 pm asked for the captain.  That call finally got a response.  But i couldn't get ready for 5 hours.  The trip was not exactly what I envisioned as a relaxing  end to a hard summer of working.  So word of advise--check that nothing is over your stateroom and ask for the captain if maintenance doesn't respond within the hour of you use this ship.
