Review SummaryThis ship was nice and very clean. The food was great and there was plenty of variety. You cant go hungry. The drinks were extremly expensive . Be sure to bring all over the counter medicine you think you may need especially something for headache,heartburn and motion sickness as the meds are very expensive(2 motion sicness pills for $4) Be sure to keep all important meds ,cash and credit cards on you till you can lock them in your room safe!! My friend left her pain meds in her suitcase when she handed it to the men at the port outside the ship and by the time her bags got to her room, the bottle was there and all 50 of her pills were gone. The ship does not care if things get stolen---they take NO RESPONSIBILITY for lost or stolen items so Pls be carefull! Bring lots of cash or credit if you plan on drinking more than a few! Dont 4get the camera. They do take pics on the boat but charge$ 22.00 if you want to buy them. The ship is one of the smaller ones so it tends to sway quite a bit some places at sea. I spent 2 days/nights in bed because of this.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Pros: The food was great
Cons: Drinks are very expensive.When you order a drink you only get a half a shot of whatever alcohol(s) are in the drink compared to a normal shot that you get at every other bar/restaurant in the country. Bullshit!!
