This was at best a good cruise minus the age of the ship. The destinations were great and the crew did a good job with informing passengers of the daily activities the night before.

Great Cruise No Wifi

Despite no wifi and the over expensive pictures (which we complained about) the cruise was great! The excursions filled up our day so we didn't partake in the entertainment as much. We are definitely cruising again and will certainly do more excursions next time.

If you're looking for a fun, lively cruise and are OK that the boat might be a little older and smaller, this is for you. If you prioritize the different ports more than being on the boat, again, this cruise is for you. If you want to spend all your time on the boat and want an ice skating rink and a pool deck that looks like God's waiting room, you probably should look elsewhere...

Purchase a (waterproof) camera! We loved capturing photos of our time onboard, as well as our excursions. When we went swimming with the dolphins and kayaking, we were able to take our camera in the water with us, giving us amazing photos and video! Also, bring an air freshener for your cabin!

We brought our GoPro and used it for our excursions and just while sitting around the pool to take pictures and videos! They turned out amazing! I also brought a mini fan to use in the room. Best idea I had!
