If you are a first time cruiser or looking for a quick getaway cruise then this might be a good way to go. Do not go in with lofty expectations. This is an older, smaller ship. It is clean with a friendly staff but everything from the entertainment to food and activities are done on a smaller scale than most of the larger ships. Remember most times you get what you pay for and if you keep that in mind you"ll have a nice time.

Cabin / Stateroom
Standard oceanview cabin. Nothing fancy.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Both were very efficient.
Ship Quality
Older ship,dated design but kept clean.
Destinations and Excursions
Cozumel and Grand Cayman are nice ports. Too short of a stay in Cozumel. Grand Cayman tenders to shore are sometimes a little rough.
Onboard Activities
Lots of bingo and art shows if that's your thing.
Children's Programs
Pretty mediocre. If you are disabled you will have a hard time finding a spot for your scooter or wheelchair.
Service and Staff
Great staff all around
Food and Dining
Middle of the road food. Nothing fancy.


Any time dining is a good way to go. Never had much of a wait for a table for two. If you are in a wheelchair or scooter a are going to a show in the theater you need to arrive well before the show. Very limited areas for the disabled.
