The cruise ship was big and for the most part it is a nice ship. A lot to do and the food was okay. The shopping on the ship was good, but in comparison the prices were much higher than at many ports. The pools were really crowded; actually too crowded so I didn't get into the water. it just looked germie to me. The shopping at the ports were great, but the shopping coordinator "Kim" was too self centered on the stores where she was getting her kick backs from. It was clear in her presentation and clear when you were shopping. It was like she stayed in those stores where she would get the highest kick back to count the number of people or keep a tab on the number of people from our cruise boat to count her money. As a matter of fact, when we were at our second port, we were shopping she came in spoke briefly then when straight to the back of the store with the owner as if she was picking up her "Mafia" money. There are much nicer stores with better deals she NEVER talked about and most of the stores she recommended were over priced so explore on your own. The customer service desk was down right AWEFUL! Don't have a problem or you'll be sucked into the dreadful hole of despair. Half of the time the computers weren't working; the line was growing and growing and growing and when a manager was called out; they never showed up as if they were hiding from the customers. Last I have to mention about the departing process off the boat. Customs was good and smooth, but the young millennials working the departure groups had no type of organization skills. They just set up a table, didn't tell anyone they were there, and no instruction unless you asked. Then to add insult to injury, they just told you to take the elevator up to the 5th floor and depart...DEPART FROM WHERE????? The lines were so long you didn't want to get confused on exactly where you should go. So you ask another person and the same stupid remark. I was soooooo glad to get of that darn ship I could have kissed the ground. Really think before you go on this cruise ship.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7590
The cabin beds were comfortable but the furniture is very old and needs to be replaced. the bath wash clothes and towels are very very old and need replacing. The bathroom was clean all the time and nice. However, the toilets kept developing this black colored ring around it and black little speckles in the water. I don't know what that was. The carpet is old and run down so where your house shoes at all times. The TV is a flat screen Samsung good picture quality, but the satellite kept sticking and going in and out. The room temperature stayed either too cold or too hot at times. Even when we adjusted it.
