Calm seas on a noisy ship

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Sailing from Ft. Lauderdale we enjoyed mostly calm seas with only a day or two of some moderate rocking.  Food was good and some of the entertainment was good.  Annika in the piano bar was fantastic.  Two major problems were encountered.  First of all after three days at sea we both contracted an upper respirator illness, but it wasn't only us.  As we interacted with larger numbers of passengers it became apparent that this was a widespread problem.  A number of us think there is an air quality problem on the boat.  Add to that the serious condensation we encountered in the Vista dining room. 

The other problem is that every day men were working outside our cabin on the lifeboat mechanisms.  This consisted of grinding and hammering ALL DAY!  Needless to say afternoon naps were hard to come by.
