Well, I suppose you get what you pay for...See my review about the cabin size, however the rest of the cruise was a bit of a let down.

The entertainment on board was to say the least poor apart from a comedian on the second night. The production shows would have bee great for my dad in 1970 but not for today's family audience and as for the magician things went from bad to worse when he got a nine year old girl up from the audience to act as his stooge.

Positives.. The Argentinian music and dancing group, they saved the best till last.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Stateroom

Under no circumstances should anyone book this cabin, it is absolutely TINY with a small circular port hole.

If it were used as a double, one of the party would have to climb over the other to use the bathroom in the night, or to exit the bed at anytime.

If you check out the deck plan you can see what the problem is...

And if you were looking for somewhere quiet...forget it. You can hear every word from the cabin next door, and as for the noise from some piece of equipment below decks, it was deafening on departure.
