Met up with friends for this cruise. We all felt standards have dropped. Undercooked and cold food in islands. Much better in 47. Less staff so cleaning in toilets was less often also running out of toilet paper . Too much of demonstrating and upselling of spa treatments. Sunbed reserving time limits not enforced. Music volume too loud in all venues. Smoking areas too small. Let smokers back on one side of deck 9 so they can join in with deck 9 entertainment. Increase tables and chairs smoking area on deck 4. Special praise goes to Alster and Rosemarie waiters from the live room. Kept everyone topped up with drinks and chat. Was impressed by bath towel size but sometimes they were stained. No need to upgrade to premium drinks package. Excursions too pricey. Aircon not working properly in both cabins. Had cruise cough when returned home. Corfu airport disabled area not big enough and not enough seats. We also had a couple of the same shows the second week.

Sleepless nights

Cabin Review

Cabin 2537.2525
Cabin was right above door to crew deck. Must have been a metal door. Complained to reception every day. Could not sleep for first week as the door slammed every few seconds when crew were changing shifts throughout day and night, used earplugs and could still hear and feel door slamming as it sounded like a shotgun blast it also shook the bed and floor. Moved further along deck 2 for the second week with no noise issues. Looking at previous reviews this cabin has had the same issues before. Either fix the door or do not let this cabin out. I noticed a do not disturb sign in this cabin and the one next door left in for the whole of the second week so maybe they did not let out these cabins.
