Relaxing Getaway

First time to cruise this way just for a weekend getaway and it really served the purpose. The whole experience was smooth, predictable and pleasant. The staff were friendly, approachable and accommodating. The foods were good but same daily. The main dining room experience was the best because the staff were very friendly and very prompt. The buffet choice of entry were understandably limited but repetitive. But overall, the quality and number of choices were reasonable. I recommend this cruise for people who just need a short getaway but be aware that my impression was it is geared towards children and young adults.

Overall we enjoyed the cruise since it was our first cruise. We enjoyed the breakfast & lunch buffet and Guy's burger. We liked the ships decoration and cleanliness. We also enjoyed the excursions.

All in all, we had a GREAT time on our cruise and can't wait for our next cruise. This is the first time our girls danced their hearts off on the Main Deck dance floor and had a blast joining in all the Line dancing they offered while we ate

Try everything! Even if an activity doesn't sound that fun or like you'll fit it, go anyways. The crew makes everything fun for everyone.

Be sure to go to the Deli for a sandwich, good Pastrami. If you want to see more of the entertainment go for the early seating for dinner.

The ship is small enough to easily find your way around, yet big enough to never feel crowded. We loved having our breakfast and lunch outside at one of the bistro tables.
