Road Scholar, always a good group, was as shocked by the daily equipment disasters that occurred every day from a three hour delay imposed by the USCG due ti a non functioning elevator for passengers and staff. No hot water for any bathing or showering for the entire cruise. Our stateroom did not have any light bulbs nor cover for the light fixture: it sat in the corner The bathroom light fixture was only attached the last night of the trip Ran completely out of fresh water ( probably due to all of us trying to get hot water) and had too make a lengthy unplanned stop to take on more water. While the wait staff in the dining room were pleasant they were clearly inexperienced ( but then the loss of a sous chef to injury, and loss of vegetable steamer created delays,as long as two (2) hours in being served meals) The phones in the staterooms did not work ever. The TV did not work until the last two days Wi-FI was dreadfully intermittent for both we passengers and for the Purser and other crew needing it. Thus, the "maiden" voyage was a "shake down cruise" with emphasis on "shake down". We paid nearly $6000...

Multiple system failures: e.g., elevator broke down, kitchen equipment failed,
