Review SummaryI stayed in a Balcony Room # 9192 on the Lido Deck. This is the first cruise for my friends and I so we didn't know what to expect. Past cruisers know the shortcuts of snatching up chairs early in the morning as I quickly learned. Mix of families and couples of all ages. Embarking process was a little disorganized at the Lido dining area with hoards of hungry people lining up for food.
This is by no means a luxury cruise liner so don't expect the sun moon and stars. Overall we had awesome time because when you are with the right people you make the best of every situation.
Food and Dining
RONNIE & VIRGIL you guys rock!
You can get more than one entree or appetizer per person so take advantage. Sun and Sea Restaurant is average. We did "anytime dining" which offered us flexibility. Drinks are NOT free and that means water is $2 a bottle. Only the ice tea and lemonade is free. Alcoholic drinks are between $7-12
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Only thing I hated was the toilets don't flush well, you have to flush 3, 4 times.
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Dunn's River
Pros: $6 Minimum Black Jack, Waiters, Stewards
Cons: Smoking Allowed in Casino, Not Enough Chairs on Pool Deck
