Review summary

This cruise started out a little different due to a 3 hour delay because of fog. But once we were onboard, we had a wonderful time. Gmfood was delicious. Reallt glad they added Guys Burgers to the ship. We really enjoyed the Piano Bar. And our cabin stayed clean and tidy. Great service overall!

Ship was delayed due to fog. Once they finally began letting people in the gate, embarkation went smoothly. Small port, however and no room for sitting in the terminal if you get there early.

Ship Quality

You can see signs of aging throughout the boat. Love the layout. Easy to maneuver.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Ocean view room. We were in E110. Great location! Just steps away from main lobby and elevators. They also closed the doors to the hallway when entertainment was going on in the lobby so no noise. Bathroom counter space was limited but that was expected on an older ship.

Ship tip

Make the most of who you're with. This is not the boat to go on for the fanciest or newest amenities and design.

So-so on this one. I believe there is some good exploring to do but we just got off the ship, walked around and got back on.
