Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The buffet had ok food, the dining room took a LONG time serving food and the portions were small. The 24 hour pizza place was good but lacked pleasant workers. Nothing else was open 24 hours and you had to wait at least 15-30 mins for a very small portion of pizza

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
I marked down for cleanliness because the ship is small but I think every bathroom I went into, one of the stalls were broken or smelled BAD

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin was comfy and clean BUT I told the steward on the first day that the safe was broken and be never got it fixed. Shower pressure was awesome and clean. On the last night, the window was making a horrible noise and it kept us up all night.

Ship tip

DO NOT book the Deluxe excursion to passion island. It was expensive and horrible. This ship is small so you get familiar with the areas quickly. But it is also an OLD ship and a lot of things about it was old

Ports of call

Key West, Florida
