The ship allowed people to smoke in a lot of places and didn't enforce smoking areas. People were smoking down hallways and everywhere on the decks. The activities were either at weird times or way late in the evening 1030. If your not a late night person than this cruise has nothing really for you to do during the day. Most of the shows and stuff were either right before dinner or late. There was no time. The food was good. The pools are small and crowded.

Late nights and wasn't kid friendly.

The kid area was great, but they had weird hours and were closed frequently which didn't make sense. They should have been open all day and they weren't.

Elevators take forever to get on and off, but overall it was clean

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This was the best part. The stateroom had plenty of space and was nice. The only down part was the lack of electrical outlets.

Dirty and they don't really care about tourist. Our travel guide seemed inconvienced by us being there and kept complaining about how many ships were their that day.
