Review SummaryFirst of all, I went with a group of 6 and we definitely had a good time. This was the first cruise, for all six of us. In the future, we all agreed, we would upgrade to a nicer cruise line.
The ship was nice, maybe a little bit rundown. We spent quite a bit of time in the casino, which was lively, fun and well run. We also watched some of the comedy shows which were decent and one of the dance reviews which - while cheesy - was also moderately entertaining. The staff was friendly and courteous, though I wouldn't put the service as more than slightly above average.
Something I should mention is that this cruise is definitely a party cruise. Lots of young-ish (or simply young acting) people who begin drinking at 10am and don't stop until they pass out for the night. We found this type of atmosphere was a bit much. I like to party and have fun, but dealing with drunk idiots at 11am is not something we signed up for.
