Review summary

The two main things I was disappointed in was our room locations and the fact that we were not all assigned to the same dinner table. When we boarded, we quickly realized that we were spread all over the place. When we initially booked, we were told that the ship was pretty full, but that only one person would be located on the 2nd floor and that the rest of us would be close together. That was not the case. We were only close to one other couple. We also quickly realized that we were not at the same dinner table. The whole reason we went though a travel person was so that it would be easier for us to be placed together. I sent over an hour going through customer service and then the dinner lead to see if we could be sat at the same table. The overall experience of the cruise was great, but the initial few hours weren't good for those that this was their first cruise experience.

Food was ok. The drinks were great. We spent most of our time eating pizza and burgers because they were the best options.

Ship Quality

Overall the ship was clean, there was always a terrible sewage smell right by our room. Not really sure what that was about.

Keep in mind that you are paying a cheaper price so the decor is dated.
