Review summary

The ship is very small and old, but is in fair condition. Breakfast and lunch were the best meals. Food in the buffet was only marginally better than the dinning room. The dinning room food was ok but the service was poor. After the second night we avoided the dinning room. The state room was good except the bath did not get cleaned very well everyday. They had the normal entertainment but it didn't compare with the Journey cruise we had just completed in Oct. Getting off and on the ship was one of the worst experiences we have had since cruising out of Baltimore. This is the first time that we used the parking lot at the pier. It was very easy to get in and out of the lot and is very safe. It costs $15 a day but you don't need a shuttle or wait in the cold for a hotel bus.

Embarkation

They not two unmarked lines, one for people that printed out their boarding pass and one for those that didn't. One was about 10 times longer than the other. Very confusing.

The stop was very short. About 5 hr. Not much to see there. The most interesting thing was a U.S. Destroyer that was docked.

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
had to wait for two and a half hours. Appears that customs and the cruise lines can't schedule times correctly. very slow. We had to leave our room at 9 and didn't get off the ship until 11:30 others were later than that.
