Review summary

Although there was a lot of things that I believe could have been better, getting out of my normal day to day life was great. Unfortunately, I do not believe that I will be cruise out of Charleston again.

It was cold but that was to be expected and the muster drill was much quicker than my first cruise which was in August of 2019.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The adult beverages were not consistent through out the entire trip but they were not the bad. The food was okay. I ate a lot of pizza, Guy’s Burgers and Blue Iguana

Alchemy Bar

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
This ship was much smaller than my last cruise but that was expected since it was older. The layout was similar but more narrow walkways.

Cabin / Stateroom
