Regarding that smell - have the cabin steward check the drain in the shower and bath floor - improper cleaning

will cause dirt debris hair to accumulate plugging drains which need ventilation to air out. Still smell something

have the cabin steward check behind curtains bed frames for possible accidents by previous guests that somehow

got missed in routine cleaning.  Open drawers cabinets for something spilled or left behind.  In a rush to clean a

cabin and move on to the next one things do get missed.


Toilets - people people read and heed the directions that placard placed on the back wall of the commode or its lid.

Prime plugging agent is diapers followed by hand wash towels. Sometimes errant clothing items get sucked into the

system - when that happens alert your cabin attendant right away to fix it before is shuts down the waste disposal

system for 50 cabins on that pipe line - don't keep using the facility causing duress to others. Now you know the

reason the commode lid has to be lowered to use the flush valve - but none the less accidents do happen.


Water pressure and HOT water - the more people using water the less the pressure and the higher the deck the

HOT water takes a bit of time to get to your facility - prime time is first thing in the morning. Some of the bath fixtures

BEWARE of leaving the settings on hot - the water may get hot without notice and scald - small warning stickers on

the plumbing in the bath shower usually warn of this.


About that crack split in the bed (large bed split into two) I don't know if the egg crate mattress cover will fix that ?

Questions about fitted sheets being used - but the whole concept should be discussed with the cabin steward -

when the beds are joined the top mattress should cover both - when split separate a smaller mattress should be used.

Readers ?


OK return with us now to the thrill of cruising 101 on a more upbeat note !
