Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Wife did get food poisoning once.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Everything was overpriced.


2 out of 5
Poor and NOT family friendly even though it indicated it was. Man laying on top of another man face to face was inappropriate. Entertainment is to entertain...stop asking for audience participation.

Children's Programs

No children

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff for the most part was excellent.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Could have done a better job keeping the common areas cleaner. The ship is old and probably needs to be retired or have a complete renovation.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Pretty good. Had problems with cigarette smoking coming in the cabin especially in the evening. We were close to the crew area and saw 1 crew member with a cigarette.

Ship tip

I would probably avoid this ship

Cozumel, Mexico Did not visit port

But heard from others that locals were EXTREMELY pushy in selling stuff. Glad we did not visit
