  1. It wouldn't be "comfortable" in the sense of "it wouldn't suit me" but since I always book a balcony cabin and always have an ebook reader with enough books with me, I think I could handle it. I like to read a lot and I could deal with myself and my books.

  5. Let' s see: March 28/2019 service charge went up from 18% to 20 % Then the prices for the drink packages went up. Cabin service charge changed january 2/2018 from 13.50$ to 14.50$ (regular cabin)
