Review summary

Yes, the ship is old and it's a smaller ship.. didn't take anything away from the enjoyment of the cruise and the friends I made. Yes there were some hiccups.. seemed to be short handed in some areas..but again I expect some minor hiccups when I cruise.. all and all one of my best cruise experiences!

Check in was fast, then straight to our room. We were eating lunch at 11:30

Had YTD, because we never know what we have planned.. Food in the dining room was hit and miss.. and somewhat inconsistent..But was still very tasty.

Onboard Activities

Was with a Facebook group, being an older, smaller ship we still never ran out of activities to keep us busy

Cabin / Stateroom

Room was clean.. did have an issue with the toilet not flushing the first night but maintenance quickly resolved it minutes.. though our AC was not as cold as I thought it should be.. needless to say, it didn't lessen my cruise experience

Ship tip

Always have an open mind..
