Review summary

Overall, it was a decent experience for my 1st cruise. If I take another, I will choose a different ship for a more peaceful setting due to the maintenance needed on this one.

No issues & went smoothly

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Dining meals were ok. I would have expected a bit better for the buffets. Most times, the food was either cold or over-done. Not much to choose from based on what previous travelers have told me about. I preferred Guys Burgers over most of it & even then the fries were usually over-cooked.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Most of the activities were good, though it was a bit cool to really enjoy pool time.

Stage shows, comedy, & all was great. Cookie did a fabulous job of keeping us laughing. The only down side is that most of the best things going on happened real late at night when I was too tired to really enjoy them

Children's Programs

No children with me

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was super nice & friendly. Room was cleaned daily & had no issues in this area

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
The design & cleanliness was good. But they always had repairs going on that made difficult to enjoy. They were either banging on something or painting something which gave off strong chemical smells. Other than that, the only issue I had here was that I keep getting on the wrong elevator that didn't go to a specific deck lol

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Size & cleanliness was great. Comfort level, not so much. They always had some type of repairs going on so being able to rest or take a nap was impossible for the beating, banging, or chemical & sewage smell. I kept getting a headache because the chemical smell was so strong. There was even leaks.

Ship tip

Don't! They need to dock this ship to complete repairs so that travelers can actually enjoy their vacation in peace

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

4 out of 5
A little busy, but expected for this area. Get there in plenty of time to get through the traffic

Key West, Florida

3 out of 5
Did think too much about this area. Plenty of shopping, but not much else unless you book an excursion.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

2 out of 5
I loved this place. Plenty of shopping. Senor Frog's is a great place to eat & relax. The entertainment was wonderful!

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
I enjoyed the beautiful water. The only port where it was decently warm so that was a nice change. A lot of shopping places, but I felt like more of the people there tended to hound at you for buying there products.


5 out of 5
Perfect & smooth. Hardly any wait time & was on the road very quickly
