Thought it would be a good way to visit a variety of destinations, but it wasn't that way. The bed was very uncomfortable, and after several complaints had the deck manager inspect it and agreed to have a one piece overlay placed over the mattress to try to give some comfort. Bed was suppose to be a queen, but was two singles put together. A foam overlay was first placed on top after the initial complaint, then a second. The overlays were of different heights which made it hard to sleep together, The bed remained lumpy and uncomfortable for the cruise, and we slept very uncomfortably for the entire 18 nights.. We both rose every morning with back pain. Night time entertainment was good, although the evening shows only lasted about 45 minutes. There was very little of interest to do of a daytime. Enjoyed the daytime lectures but again only lasted about 45 minutes.Spent a lot of time just sitting looking at an ocean. A very boring cruise. The food was great, but became monotonous in the grand dining room because the menu was never varied much.

Cabin Review

AquaClass
Cabin A1 9221
The bed was two single beds put together rather than the queen bed that we expected. The original mattress was thin, somewhat hard and very uncomfortable. After complaining, the steward added a foam overlay to one side of the bed only, and after complaining, had another foam overlay added to the other side. They were lumpy and hard to sleep on, and were different heights, making it very hard to sleep together. After continually complaining, the deck manager inspected the bed and approved to have a one piece overlay fitted. The bed remained uncomfortable and we enjoyed very little sleep on the cruise. Both rose every morning with back pain.
