My concern was food and entertainment. I should not have had any concerns.

Review summary

This was my first cruise so I was worried about being bored or if the food would be so bad and what would I for options for seven days. I would start with the entertainment as far as the dodge ball, comedy, etx was amazing. I would not be able to say much for the cruise director because he made me uncomfortable personally. The food was great at times and decent at others but always good enough to fill you up. Overall for the value you can not beat a cruise hands down. This was the very best trip for the price I could imagine and I travel often. Just a good mixture of relaxing and yet have things to do for free. When I go on my next cruise I will try for this ship it just had everything you could want and well kept.

The balcony room was nice but I would only do window next time

Ship tip

The main thing I would suggest is knowing you are on Texas time at all times while on the ship. We missed booking two excursions because we did not think we would be back in time. Besides that we had a blast and you get to know a lot of people on the trip.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

It is a little larger then Freeport city but still nothing special. I hardly left the ship this day.
