We booked this cruise as a whim, only about 10 days before sailing.  We were giving late dining and told we could change it on the ship.  My husbands medical condition, will not allow him to eat dinner that late.  Once on the boat they could not make any accomadation for him.  So we ate at the Buffet for the duration of the cruise.  Basically, the food sucks.  Very little variation, and salt is the main ingredient.

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Its good that its going into dry dock.
Destinations and Excursions
No excursions this time. Missed Costa Maya because of weather. We have been to all the destinations many times and find them fun and colorful, a look into a different way of life.
Onboard Activities
Its the same old things, and not much of it. You would think they could come up with more than bingo and trivia.
Same old tired shows, the PG comedians are usually really funny.
Service and Staff
Our room steward was great. Never forget any request and was very helpful! Others, couldnt be bothered with even a hello.
Food and Dining


These are budget boats. This is also a party boat. The Mardi Gra party goes well onto 1 am in the morning. Screaming, yelling. It is very very loud, they arent sleeping, therefore you do not need to sleep. People making wolf calls in the halls. People arguing next door. Thin walls.
