Review summary

This cruise was great. The crew and staff was great. Tampa is a great and easy port to depart from. The ports were great and will visit again. The only problem was, this five day cruise was too short, about the time you get used to the ship the cruise is over.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Our Room Steward, Oja, was great. It was difficult to get drinks in the sitting area outside the casino. You had to go to the bar to get your drink and when you return to your seat someone else had taken them.

Ship Quality

Was easy getting around.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was inside and was big enough to store a walker that did not need to be collapsed. It was a little hard getting the walker in the room but not as difficult as on other ships.

Ship tip

The ship is an older ship that is scheduled to be refurbished soon so they were always working on, but was great. The crew and staff were great.

Ports of call
