Review summary

I would recommend only for the budget conscious. Otherwise wouldnt recommend. On deck waiters would take too many orders before returning, room hot. Smoking areas made walking to destinations aggravating because you would have to walk through. 

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Nightly meals were great. All day dining was just ok. I don't think gratuity should be added. Waiters overloaded themselves and by the time you got your drink alcohol or non it was watered down.

Late dining conflicted with some shows. Take this into consideration when choosing dining time.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Had to go to customer relations 4 times because of mix ups on ship card. Actually had another person charging in my account. Took two times to have this removed. Only to have to go down around midnight one night because all charging privileges had been suspended. It wasn't the card...card had zero balance

Ship Quality

customer relation lines were way too long. Smoke in the casino was horrible. We had to walk through/by to get to dining and clubs. Older ship but it was clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was hot. I am aware that it sleeps 4 but it really dosnt accomodate 4. Super HOT.

Ship tip

Upgrade on cabin if you are into convenience. This cruise was booked for me. The cabin was clean and bed slept wonderful. It was HOT. Take a fan.
