Great! I loved the entertainment especially the dancing by the pool. The dj and the hostesses were fun and lively. They really know how to hype up a crowd.

Fun trip for our first vacation in a decade

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
It was our first cruise together, and our first vacation sans kids. The day at sea got a little tedious in the early afternoon, with no real activities that interested us scheduled until around 5:30 or so. Entertainment was great, food was good, staff was attentive and knowledgeable. A great experience overall.

Great Fall Break Getaway

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)
This was a quick getaway with my 8 and 14 yo's for fall break. The boat was full of young fall break families, which worked out well and kept the kids entertained. There was a variety of entertainment for all ages, and everything was pretty well organized and maintained. This is an older and heavily-used ship, but I wasn't expecting anything fancy out of this trip. It is a good intro cruise, or good for a family getaway, and people all seemed to be having a great time.

As stated previously, we are not happy with . We never received our onboard ship credit. To be honest, i never really thought we would get it. It sounded like a scam from the beginning.

We had a fun time overall. The kids club was a highlight for our children as well as the water slides. I'd definitely recommend eating at Guy's Burger Joint...they were so good!!

On the final day you can go to the lido buffet and have breakfast while waiting to get off the ship. if you take your time and have breakfast and get off the ship at about 10, quicker through customs and parking lot. You do not feel like your getting the bums rush to get off the ship.

If you can carry your bags on with you, I would recommend this over having the bags delivered. We like to do this so that we can unpack quicker and get out an enjoy the daily cocktail special and hit the Burger Bar and enjoy the delicious food.

on the last day, we waited to the very last minute to exit off the ship and avoided the crowd.
