Review summary

If you like being crammed in with a ton of people you don’t know with kids crying...this is the cruise for you! If you think you’ll relax and enjoy the peace and quiet, find another ship!

It’s an old ship and it shows, the staff clean it but it needs some major work

Cabin / Stateroom

The best part was the balcony! The bathroom very small, reminded me of being on a airline! The bed was comfy.

If you have kids, it’s a great ship for you! An adult couple, no!
