i took my 86 year old mother on this cruise for Mother's Day. It was within driving distance, not too long for her & affordable.
The port of Charleston is old & crowded. Luckily, we were Priority status & were met with a hostess who escorted us directly to the check-in desk. Very friendly & accommodating. Also, our parking was free due to handicap sticker.
The room was roomy - much larger than I had expected. Most comfortable bed/pillow I've slept on! Breakfast room service was delivered promptly every morning.
The food was OK - we ate in the dining room only 3 times - for dinner. Preferred the on-deck buffet.
The entertainment was minimal - only saw one musical/dance show due to poor quality. Our favorite nightly activity was listening to karaoke & playing slots.
Would I take this cruise again? Maybe. Have been on many cruises - would take this only because it's close, inexpensive, and would be a sun-filled getaway.
