This was my first time on a cruise ship for my honeymoon and I didn't feel welcomed or entertained. The demographics were broad from crying kids to senior citizens with limited mobility\, and we didn't find many other couples similar to us.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Buffet was limited and unappealing. The dinner service was poor with small portions and the waitstaff disappeared for long periods of time. They try to up sell you on bottled water and liquor shots.


1 out of 5
Music show seemed like a high school production.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Poor English and try to sell you something constantly. Our room was always clean though.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Outdated ship with confusing floor plans.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Clean but did not have a fridge or ice bucket.

Pros: Getting off the ship on Little Stirrup island

Cons: Being hounded to buy alcohol by staff
