Our cruise was dissapointing. Many members of staff were rude or apathetic. The ships' activities were boring. The ports that we actually did make were mostlty uninteresting.

Our cabin was acceptable. Our cabin steward was the only worker that we tipped extra.

You will be herded like cattle during the shore excursions. Create your own excursions.

From day one we saw that the ship's staff was unproffesional. We asked one for directions to our room and he said "There are no rooms on this level". (Our room was about 50 feet away!). At the buffet we alerted a staff member to a giant dragonfly buzzing around on the windowsill next to our table. He sarcastically remarked; "Looks like he's on vacation", and walked away (I wrapped it in a napkin and set it free outside).

My wife cut her arm badly by brushing against a sharp picture frame in our room. She went to ship's medical, and was told that she had to go and buy her own bandaids and antisceptic! They showed little concern and offered little help.

We missed 2 ports because of the weather, which we understand, but it seemed that there could have been better alternative plans. We could only stay an average of 5 hours at most stops.

Next time we will stick to Carnival or Disney.
