Review summary

this cruise was just ok for me I broke my leg 6 weeks before my cruise, had to rent a scooter and was unable to do alot of the normal things I'm used to doing. also had severe motion sickness due to having to get around on the scooter. (we have been on 16 cruises and I have never been sea sick) we have excellent service and made some life long friends lithesome of the staff.

very small room! very disappointed. no way the scooter that I rented would have fit in our room with the 3 of us. I would have had to break he scooter down every time I came into the room.fortunately we were upgraded to a wheelchair accessible room on the 11th floor which is the room my rating is based upon

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

if you like a wild drunken party then Margaritaville pool is the place for you. unfortunately was unable to get down on the beach due to my injury
