The food was very average and the dining areas did not remain open long enough. When they were supposed to be open, they were not open. There needs to be more areas open for late night dinners (other than pizza), and more activities at night. The food choices were really odd. Like there would be chips out, but no salsa. Or there would be guacamole out, but no chips. One time, there were taco dinners out, and instead of salsa, there was marinara sauce. Just very odd food choices that didn't go together.

I could not hear the intercom very well when directions were being given.

The wait staff was excellent. Our server, Felix, was wonderful.

The rooms were pretty spacious for a ship cabin, and they were kept clean.

Given how inexpensive this cruise was (about $260), I couldn't expect much, but there were some very odd people on this cruise. There was a 60 year old woman on the cruise dancing around in a bikini half out of her mind the whole time and she liked to interrupt anything that was going on (like kareoke). There were some shady people on the cruise, and it seemed like a boat full of convicts and mental patients. I would not recommend this cruise for people with small children. DO not bring kids on this cruise. But it was very entertaining watching all of these weird people, and I have to admit it added character to our experience (for a bachellorette party).
