Review Summary

As a first time cruiser, I have nothing to compare this trip with; however, my impression is that it was all and more than I had anticipated. The crew on the ship was great..all staff from the stewards on up were all very attentive and friendly. Dining was great..you could eat in the dining room or have your choice of buffet, deli, Chinese food, etc., etc., etc. I was very suprised when I got my bill at check out time...it was much lower than I thought it would be....this included on ship purchases of jewelry, cigarettes, liquor, etc. This was a wonderful trip and I look forward to going on another one in the future.

Just went to Sr. Frog's as recommended. Very pricy drinks, but a good time. We also visited a casino. Okay but it got dark shortly after arriving so we didn't stray too far from the ship.
