Review summary

The ship was old and dirty. Also, there were very large lines and waits to do anything on the boat, whether it was eating, waiting for towels, or miniuture golf equipment, everything took way longer than it should have. The worst part of the vacation was definitely booking the cruise with . We booked a package that included a cruise and flight. They told us we were guaranteed to get a flight, and when our flight information still wasn't posted after several days. They let me know that we had no flight, and that we were required to book that on our own now. In the meantime the cost of flights more than tripled and I called to ask to pay the difference and they refused. What a terrible way to do business!
