Average cruise

Sail Date: October 01, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship's maintenance was about average. Crew did spend a lot of time cleaning and polishing common areas. Did not like the fact that smoking is allowed on balconies - we had to request to be moved due to continuous smoking on the balcony next to ours. Cruise line did provide a move but that involved the hassle of packing and unpacking again. Maintenance personnel were painting on lower deck near the air intake for ventilation and fumes were dispersed into the staterooms and hallways above. Front desk investigated and got the work stopped. This type work probably should be done in port instead of when at sea.

Pros: Most of ship's staff were very friendly.

Cons: Smoking allowed on balconies.
