3 bottles of water complements of the cruise lines on the shelf...we bought 48 bottles for around 170 dollars...3 cases of 15 adds up to 45 in my books so we paid for the complements of us water..

We were there during the hurricane cruise...

Cabin Review

Family Balcony
Cabin B2 8672
Dirty when we 1st entered...spit and tooth paste on the mirror and sink..
Dirty in the room ...wife used all her wet wipes cleaning the room
Wouldn't walk bare foot on those floors
Bed was worn out ...nothing done about it...ribs or springs run the length of it ...must be as old as the ship
Note when we entered said 3 bottles of water compliments of the cruise line...we bought 48 one liters bottles for around 170 dollars..there were 3 cases in the room with 15 bottle per case ..that 45 bottles doing my math ..3 bottles on shelf we paid for .what a joke .....
Wooden balcony rail was painted during our stay ...looks like hell...try sanding the wood...ships hull must be painted over rust..
Metal rails on balcony was black dirty ...just a dirty room ...
