You have to understand that this ship is 22 years old (written in 2012). She had a certain "sewer smell" throughout the cruise, the smell of diesel on the top deck and stale cigarette smell in the state rooms and hallways. Mid-ship and aft she had a shimmy when underway that shook the dining tables. However, you can't beat the price, and although things are not up to Royal Caribbean standards, it isn't that far behind.

We had an extra day at sea due to high winds, and quickly ran out of things to do. They don't have a show every night, and the columns in the theater block some of the view for many of the seats.

Again, at 22 years old, she doesn't have the "flow" of a modern ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Except for the constant stale cigarette smell, the state rooms are comfortable. The modernized bathrooms are excellent.

Pros: Low price

Cons: Smells aboard
