This was an inexpensive cruise and our first one ever. The ships crew was fantastic\, the food was Golden Corral quality\, the drinks overpriced\, the activities endless\, the ship really nice\, the stateroom (window) a nice size\, but it was like staying for four days in a Las Vegas casino with no chance to escape the noise and the crowds except for the stateroom. The shows were really good with some talented singers and dancers but the comedy acts were the best. Don McEnery and Hal Spear are two very funny men who got us coming back for every show they did. We'd probably do another cruise someday but it was obvious that people who cruise regularly are there for the food which is endless. I got the idea when a 300 pound man walked by me with a huge platter of food piled three inches high with two half pints of chocolate milk on top of it. About half of the food goes in the garbage by the way. Amazing waste. The stops in Key West and Cozumel were designed to get us to spend money in those towns and get back on the ship to eat. The people\, both the crew and other passengers were great. We met some really nice people.

Anyone doing a cruise should look at the plates people leave behind when they get up from the table. I have never seen as much food turned to garbage as I did on this cruise. Absolutely shameful. It's one of the reasons why terrorists hate us.

Performers were very talented and the shows well done. Cruise director\, Skip\, was a master MC and the comedians were as funny as any I've seen live anywhere.
