Cabin: Oceanview Stateroom

Saw this 2 week cruise as a deal before Christmas. Unusual itinerary so decided to go.

Where to start!? We flew to Cuba on Air Europa, via Madrid. Never again...a party plane, with duty free booze on sale, with the obvious results and no interference from the crew...they hid!

Opera was a huge disappointment. Multi lingual, very noisy, and lots of other nationalities, Spanish and Mexican especially, for whom it seemed this was their first cruise and who were determined to enjoy everything on offer to the detriment of other passengers. Corridor noise was an on-going problem. Evening theatre entertainment was spoiled by constant noise. The volume level around the ship was higher than on any others we have cruised!!

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin O1

Smallest room we have ever had.

Wardrobe/drawers would have been too small for one, let alone 2!

Shower/toilet even more minimalist.
