We just came home from 10 days on the Zenith and it was wonderful. Loved the ship, nice and small, easy to get around and I never got lost!
She is an older lady of the sea. Needs some updates but in good condition for her age. The food was excellent and so was the service. Couldn't want more than that. I don't need the glitz, it was just wonderful. Some of the chairs need to be moved to the garbage, old and stained, the rugs in spots show signs of wear.
If you look for the flaws on any ship you will find them. So, I wasn't looking....remember I was surprised to see how badly scratched the elevators were on the Voyager of the Sea when she was a new ship!
I didn't like the elevators. They made strange noises and I heard that some folks got stuck for 10 minutes in one on our cruise. So, I walked - needed the exercise after eating so much of their great food.
You will have a wonderful time, look at the positives around the ship and have a great cruise.
Wish we were going with you!
