Our family decided to do a 2 wk Meditteranean cruise together. It was myself, my husband and our 3 teenage kids. My in-laws also also came. The ship is beautiful and very clean. We found alot to do during days at sea. The food was just okay-not amazing! We had a lot of issues with the stateroom. Almost immediately I started to have upper respiratory problems. I went to the medical facility and asked if my husband (who is a Physician) coulld listen to my lungs and determine if I had a pneumonia. Nurse was very rude and said I would have to pay 180.00 to use the stethescope!!! Spoke to houskeeping and they changed all the sheets, comforter and bedding. Still sick!!! Went to the Windjammer buffet and heard other people coughing and wheezing on board!! There were about 30 of us that I know about that had the same symptoms. I alerted the staff and Physicians and they didn't seem concerned. This ship obviously has some problems in the airconditioning ductwork or something environmental that was making a lot of the passengers sick. No one on board seemed to care. The food in the dining room was fine and the staterooms were roomy (for cruise standards) and had lots of storage space.

Food was adequate

Roomy and loads of storage


Didn't do any excursions
