Great Cruise

Sail Date: September 08, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall impression, I liked the ship and the environment. The downfall is the gratuity that is added to every charge you have. My issue is that if you are not happy with a server, it should be our discretion if we offer gratuity. Furthermore, since we are on the ship for several days, there should be a more reasonable charge on drinks. Drinks were as much as if in were in a night club.

Pros: Just the open water and seeing different locations

Cons: That gratuity was added to every drink that was purchased.
