This was our 4th cruise and by far the worst one.  We love to cruise but this boat was too crowded and their main focus was on the sale of alcohol and not the safety of the guest.  The pool was crowded and had several racist drunks jumping in splashing people and yelling USA,USA.  Security wouldn't do anything about it at first. Finally something happened on the last day and they had to drain the pool.  Also we signed up for early dining and was given late dining.  We never eat this late and asked to be changed.  We were told they would notify us the next morning about our change.  By 2:00 the next afternoon we hadn't heard anything so we went back to guest services and was told nothing had been changed.  Later we had a note under our door telling us they couldn't change it.  Because of this we skipped the dining room several nights. This was our 4th cruise and we were not happy this time.  Probably going to try another cruise line for our next cruise.

The steakhouse was exceptional but the rest of the food was average.

Onboard Activities

We only laid out by the pool during the day and went to the Liquid Lounge at night for the show and were happy for the most part.

Ship Tip

If you have the extra money the steakhouse was well worth the money.
