Cabin: Oceanview Stateroom

We chose the cruise for its ports of call. Western Mediterranean.

Ship is poorly maintained and outdated. It is not well maintained. The brass railing was always stained. I had to call maintenance to come clean my bathroom properly upon embarkation. Dust everywhere. Shower flooded as the drain did not drain properly. This happened in 2 cabins. Once again had to call for service. Food was not of quality. Tables at the Buffet area are often dirty. Cabins are very small. Quality of food at the buffet was poor. Not much selection. Often same selection for meals. Had to wait a while at the bar to be served. Not enough personnel.

Upon embarkation it felt as I was at a flee market- selling their different drink packages once we entered the ship.
