We had chosen this cruise line because we were helping a friend celebrate his Birthday. We booked 1 year in advance. The dates changed, the number of ports were changed. But the line and travel agent said otherwise I still have the original pprwrk. Cost us money to change our flight.. .So the ship is lovely. Not much shopping. 1 of our bags was at the door when we arrived.. The other took 6 HRS to get to the room. We were told to go to security when we met it coming down the hall. THE Original drink package we had was ALL included.. upon arrival, it CAHNGED to anything under $10. We asked for an iorn, told we had to reserve and might get it the next day.. then told we had to fill out a paperbag so we wouldn't disturb him again.. lol. We ordered roomservice 2 times. The 1st time EVERYTHING was wrong except the coffee and cereal. The 2nd time it NEVER showed.. Hope you like pizza.. the menu never changes on the buffett. The bars close down early. So if you're looking for a drink at 830 pm.. good luck. 2 bars were out of the WINE I like, 1 bar was closed and I was instructed to go elsewhere. So, I gather Italians don't know how to party.. The shows sucked sooo bad. So bad. DON'T DO THE SHOWES, YOU NEVER GET THAT TIME BACK. We ended up in San Juan at 5 pm. The homeless people were already ASLEEP!!!! Originally we were supposed to be there 2 days.. only on port 7 hrs. You can feel the boat rock soo much.. take dramamine with you.. you could feel it on EVERY floor. The dinner package is not worth it. You only get to order from a small menu (hope you like crab cakes). The other 2 ports were ok.. 2 days at sea. 2 Days at sea !!! Where the alcohol was running out. AND The chocolate was running out. So it was good luck to everyone.. on anything. HOPE everyone has happy meds.. OMG the mess of diembarking taking your own luggage.... IT was a mess!! Took over an hr to get off that HORRIBLE boat. Had a line that wrapped around mid deck. People cutting line, just stressful. Then they let us go out with the Canadiens. Smh. Free at last! FINALLY

Ummm. Really???

Cabin Review

Aurea Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B3 11215
Whirlpool tub was NOT private at all. Couch is uncomfortable. Tv not in front of bed. Shower gets EVERYTHING wet thats in there. I couldn't get the safe to work. And yes, I know how to work one. Had to steal a pen from the spa to be able to order room service.. that didnt come 1 of tge 2 days we did order.
