The cruise was great. The weather was rough, but our captain still got us into all of the scheduled ports. The ship was tired and a little smelly - but I know it's headed in to get updated this summer sometime. The casino was terribly tight and always crowded, but it had nice machines. We've already booked our next cruise, but carefully picked a much newer ship this time.

Service and Staff

Our steward was fantastic, our dining room staff was okay - a lot of the staff appeared tired out.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
It was tired, outdated and smelled bad in several places.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Our room got uncomfortably warm several days into the cruise. There was maintenance in our hallway quite a bit, so I imagine there was a problem with the A/C

Definitely the highlight of our trip! When you get off the ship, go to the beach on the right and get a massage by Joel and his mom - they are amazing!!
