Review summary

We were disappointed in the condition and cleanliness of the ship i.e. the top decking was work, warped and rusted. Carpets worn and tired, etc.. The ship had constant breakdowns, i.e. generators, engines, power, AC, marine deck, anchor, sails, etc.. . Should have been in dry dock 6 months ago.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
design OK. Not that clean and worn out. Not sure we need constant vacuums and garbage bags in the hallway.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Not too bad. A bit worn. On arrival the safe deposit box did not work and the thermostat did not work. had engineers in the room for the first couple of days.

Ship tip

Ensure it's coming out of dry dock not heading into dry dock. this should not have been a revenue trip - should have already been in repair and refurb.
