I won’t go into full details of a few issues incurred on ACL - situations that required changes in plans.  

1.  If there are mechanical issues that require all passengers to stay in a hotel overnight

    A.  Take all your luggage with you in case it turns into major repair ACL pays for hotel

          Otherwise will incur a return bus trip to ship (in my case it was a 6 hour round trip )

2.  Expect the unexpected.   Itineraries can change, excursions cancelled etc.   ACL works 

      Hard to make trips wonderful experiences -  they are good with alternative plans.


3. I always bring antiseptic wipes and wipe down surfaces — the 2 hour turn around doesn’t give the housekeepers time to  wipe every surface you may touch.

Another observation.  Most of the problem have been on the oldest ships.  Possible 

Not doing regular preventative maintainence but fixing as things break until new ships replace the oldest ships.
