The ship is nasty. Old, rusty, unstable.

The shows were very good - but the after show was the best. The entertainment director, Cam was fabulous. He had us rocking in the atrium!

Service and Staff

Room service was not reliable and the dining staff were slow at times.

Ship Quality

The baffle system isn't very good - were were rolling on small swells. Our shower had rust. The bathroom design is the worst I have seen. Rust around the window, the carpet design could not have been worse - it literally exaggerated the sensation of rolling.

Cabin / Stateroom

We chose to have our room serviced in the afternoon/evening. So, they started coming in the morning. Sometimes they would leave glasses, and sometimes we had to call to have them delivered. We left used towels on the racks to dry, but they delivered new ones every day. The floor needed vacuuming when we arrived. I brought Clorox towelettes to clean, and am glad I did.

We arranged this tour on our own and it was great. We went all over the island, and then to Atlantis for $29.
