While this ship does not have some of the amenities of some of the newer larger ships I had a great time. I did miss some things that we had on the first cruise, The buffett was smaller, the shows were not first rate, But if you just want to get out and relax the price is good and the views or the Gulf of Mexico are the same you would see on the larger more expensive hips.
