Review Summary

Let me say I will NEVER take that ship again.  When you first walk on the ship we felt like we were back in 1970, very ugly interior.  Next i hated that the shipped smelled like smoke, you could smoke in the casino and the bar area, but it still made that floor stink bad.  The pool area was small and I never hung out there, the BEST part was the private area in the back of the boat for over 21.  Loved our room, it was huge, we had a window and plenty of room to walk in and we were on the bottom level, cheap price and very nice.  The service in the dining room was great and so was the food, love that they danced every night.  I was very disappointed in the pizza bar, it was good, but you couldnt make your own pizza you could only order it 3 ways, very stupid.  Then when it came to the cafeteria, I HATED seeing kids go and pick up food and then put it back down, germ central very nasty.  When it came to the drink package, to get a soda i had to go to the bar, why dont you invest in the coke machine where you put a cup under it, the cup has a chip in it like other cruise ships.  I felt not much entertainment for us and were only 45 years young.  I'm sure there are a lot more bad things to say I just cant remember them all.

Cabin / Stateroom

Best part of the boat, room was big and had a window, but if you get sea sick and the water is rough you better take a pill its on the bottom.

Ship Tip

You are allowed to bring on canned soda do it. Bring whatever you allowed it will save lots of money.
