Good choice for First Cruise

Sail Date: February 19, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our first cruise. I now know what to look for in our future cruising chips. Although all food is free, if you drink alcohol, prepare to pay a steep price. The shows were very amateur, comedian not very funny. I would book this trip again for the cheap price and length (3 days).

Pros: Room was big (oceanview), food 24 hours per day. Crew director excellent, San Diego Port 3 miles from airport.

Cons: Drink prices (appx $7/drink), ship is old, needs remodeling
