Service and Staff

with the exception of spirit dining and a few bar people, I expected phenomenal service, like other cruises I've been on. Sadly, this was not the case. I even experienced some attitude from some workers.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The rooms were not clean. Upon arrival I had a dirty used rag in my shower and mold on the bathroom walls. The rooms were cleaned daily which was nice but like make bed and dump trash cleaned lol. Room window was dirty so we could barely see out of it 😔 The ship was easy to navigate. Apart from the fumes of paint during the trip and a late departure in catalina due to some ship " issue "... ship seemed well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Good size, nice pillows, vanity, alot of closet space. At first glance appears clean, then when you actially spend time in there its quite dirty.

Ship tip

Dont have high expectations! Its a great weekend get away not a "vacation" to remember.
