We took this cruise so that our seven year old grand child could go. We had a party of 6. There were our daughter and her soon to be husband, the grand son and a 55 year old friend of our daughter. Boarding was fine and orderly. Our room had my wife and I along with the grandson. The room was a balcony 8-378 with a bed and a pull out. We noted the room was warm upon arrival. We adjusted the thermostat and found it made no difference. We called guest services and nothing happened. We notified our room steward and nothing happened. We called again and they sent someone out to measure the temperature in the room. 75. No horrible, just humid and no AC. It was cooler outside the room. The guy who measured the temperature indicated he would have the AC people come look at the system. The AC tech never materialized but our room steward did give us a fan. The next day we actually went to guest services and they claimed it was 72.6 degrees the evening before. That wasn't true. The young man from Belarus showed us the meter at 75 degrees Fahrenheit. We complained again and still no one came. Fortunately the weather was not that hot and we survived with quick showers and a fan blowing on us. Upon return it was clear they had a problem. At least 30% of the doors had fans sitting outside waiting to be taken back to storage. The rest of the room was fine except there was ONE 110 v electrical plug in the entire room/bathroom. Not one outlet, one plug and that was now occupied by the fan. There was a 220V outlet in the Bathroom. I paid for the highest internet and it was a joke. I could hit my email. I could get Fox news about 30% of attempts. I could get CNN 0% of the time. I tried to log into a bridge web site. Nope. Download a book to read. Nope again.

No AC in our room, one power outlet

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8D 8-378
No AC nor would they attempt to fix. Got us a fan. One power outlet. At disembarkation there were many fans being brought out of rooms. This suggests my room was not an isolated event.
