Room Type: Oceanview

Old ship that has not been updated, food good, rooms nice, very difficult to get around in. Boarding and getting off ship very difficult. Customer service around pool deck rude, very difficult to get service, drinks very pricey. Waiters for dinner awesome, very courteous and friendly. Boat smelled very musty, basketballl rims were broken, boat was rusty and bathrooms were very difficult to find.

do the all inclusive otherwise beach is nasty and full of soliciters


go to serenity to lay out so you have a nearby restroom, not the front there are none. Also very difficult to work out on, very small walking track and too rocky for workout room, bring sea sick meds have never needed before but it is very rocky, bring lots of money carnival is cheaper to get on but their drinks and pictures are almost double,not a cheap vacation.
