Disappointing Cruise

I chose this because it was a ten day cruise which went to some off the beaten track Ports. The food was sub-par and the ships facilities were in need of repair. None of the Hot Tubs on the ship were working ...

Good birthday cruise with some issues.

Enjoyed the trip for the most part. We did like to see some of the shows on the outside big screen. But it was way to loud most of the time which drove us to the other pool. The pool under the screen was somewhat ...
