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.

Lots of bingo and art shows if that's your thing.

Pretty mediocre. If you are disabled you will have a hard time finding a spot for your scooter or wheelchair.

Standard oceanview cabin. Nothing fancy.

Ship Tip

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.
