Food and Dining

Bought drink pabkage for 5 day cruise. It's only good for 4 days. You can't use it the day of embarkation or disembarkation. Crooked! We paid for 5 days.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Cabin steward was MIA. He cleaned our room twice on a 5 day cruise. All the other cabin stewards were always in the hall. I never even saw ours. Not once.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship was absolutely filthy, from the outside that you first see, to the cabin (no cabin steward again), to the balcony which was covered in soot from the moment we checked in. There was an empty soda can still on the balcony when we checked in.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Size of the cabin was good. Again, no cabin steward so it was not clean.

Ship tip

Don't do it if you have any expectations at all.
