First time cruise so did not know what to expect. Ship is clearly older and dated, but well maintained. Layout nice. Had outside room with portholes. Basic, but nicer and larger than anticipated. Main complaint was only one small pool for all the guest and tiny hot tubs. Staff provided good service. Many of the staff had difficulty conversing in English. Food plentiful with many options. Would be nice to have restaurant choices. Excursions limited and pricey. Variety of entertainment and activities. Purchased fast to fun. Embarking and Debarking simplified.

Basic, but more spacious than expected. Lighting good. Plenty of storage. Not many outlets. Bathroom with shower. Water pressure and temperature was nice.
