Couldn't wait for cruise to end. Everything sub-standard at best.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Had a hard time finding anythihg on dining menu I liked as side dishes or sauces were a little weird. Although meat portions were ample.


3 out of 5
Only 2 or 3 of the nighttime musical shows were any good. The last night's singer was terrible, we walked out. And what's the deal with X-rated comedians? Daytime activities seemed geared more towards children or young adults.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Our head waiter at dinner was the only friendly person with any abilities to please. Most staff just walked on by except for the spa staff.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Didn't like walking through casino or lounge smelling smoke to get to another part of the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Paid for a balcony room which should have been listed as a partially obstructed view room. Had to ask to have mini-bar unlocked then to find it locked again a few days later. Bed was extremely hard. Small stateroom overall.

Only went into cruise terminal. Had been at this port before and wasn't impressed that time either.

Waste of time.

Quaint shopping, fishing, beach town.

Cons: Food, service, not informative, staff not friendly
