Not impressed! I was really excited for this 5 day cruise. It was the most rocky cruise I have ever been on. The had canceled one of our ports to Mexico and did not reimburse us for missing the experience of being in warm weather. The automatically started going back to New Orleans and it got cold really quickly. We complained to guest services and they did not care to make us happy and did not care if we did or did not sail again. The food made all four of us sick, we all ate together and we all had constipation/diarrhea at the same time. They did not have very many shows scheduled through out the day (you would think we would have more during our cancelation of our port). The ship is older so its very easy to get around and there isn't that much to do. They charge you for just about everything. WATCH YOUR BILL DAILY! Stay away from the casino, they just take your money! I saw no one win over 100$ and we spent a lot of time there since there wasn't much else to do. The comedy show was the best part of this cruise, having an adults only section was nice, but over crowded in the morning time!
