Not a good cabin to...

Sail Date: April 15, 2012

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Not a good cabin to be in as it is next to one of the gangways. The ship is very tired and desperately in need of a refit, the bathroom was in need of remedial work, as the toilet failed to work 7 times and on one occasion overflowed, also the air conditioning was not consistent. The staff with the exception of one department were fabulous particularly the Philipino and Indonesian staff were brilliant and the best we have been in contact with during our cruise lifetime. Unless the ship has a refit I will not cruise on that ship again. In conclusion the itinerary was great and apart from the cabin issues we had a great time, the athmosphere on the ship was brill.
