Review Summary

This was our first ever cruise, so we weren't quite sure what to expect. We specifically picked this one due to the ship's size, itinerary offered, and time of year, as well as for its good overall value, and were not dissapointed. Ship was clean, food was very good, and the ship offered a variety of venues for all age brackets. All-in-all, a good first experience and one we will likely do again.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Variety and quality of food (not to mention quantity) very good. I especially liked the option we had of anytime dining, so we were not rushed to get in and out of the dining room at spefific times.


3 out of 5
Outside of the excellent comedians, rest of the entertainment was average at best.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was extremely friendly, and almost always accessible.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Size was just right for first time cruisers such as us. Layout was somewhat confusing, as often you could not get to where you wanted to go on a specific deck, despite being on the right deck (probable due to our being novice cruisers).

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Being an older ship, the size of the rooms were small but adequate and very clean.

Pros: Variety and quality of food, shore excursions

Cons: Too little time in Key West
