our cruise was Jan 10-17 2009
We have cruised before and this has been the worst vacation ever and we have never felted threatened or been treated this way. You need to know that there were many times through out this week that we felt very insecure at times because of all the lack of knowledge and inexperienced staff, unable to communicate due to lack of English. The staftey drill was not enforced, If we ever had to get off this ship in an emergency it would be a disaster. Know one knew what was happening next or where anything was, we were sent in all kinds of directions. We had to listen to everything in 5 different languages at the show, loud speaker, safety drill, games bingo etc. we were not told that we would be subject to this. This was very annoying, when we asked our travel agent about this ship they said it would have an Italian décor, we were ill advised as to the type of ship we were going on. The anger from the passengers was just brewing by mid week and we were starting to feel uneasy and could not wait to get off this ship. There was this nawing feeling that something bad was going to happen. The following will outline the dangers we felt and the experience we had on board this ship. All week you could not avoid all the complaints from all the passengers even if you wanted to try and stay positive, everyone was talking in the lines ups, down the hall by the pool at the buffet even in Cozumel we were talking a salesman at one of the stores once he found out that we were on this ship he said he had heard complaints from other customers. the food was barely warm not alot of taste. Most of the staff was rude and inconsiderate. No smoking areas was not enforced all came home sick, ventalation was terrrible. Pool was too deep, no music around the pool very boring. Not enough to do if it rains or of you choose not to get off the ship. Beside the weather being nice this trip was on big flop.
