NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! First and LAST CRUISE!!!!!

Sail Date: August 27, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

I thought the room we were in was very nice (Grand Suite), but I hated how jam packed everything was.  People everywhere, smoking was allowed in the casino and on the decks, so if you're outside in the sunshine you smell constant smoke or if you have to walk through the casino it was like a smoke screen.  The pools were dirty with funky film and foam floating in them, I refused to even go in them in fear of what was GROWING in there.   Food Galore, no quality just quantity, I saw tons of wasted food from many many people.  It reminded me of mass produced school lunches, with no nutritional value or flavor but FULL of fat and sodium.  The only thing I enjoyed was the fruit, and the ice water. The majority of staff can barely speak English, and it was hard to understand them and vise versa, a true language barrier.  Never again!!!! glad we went to know that in the future we will never take a cruise again, I will stick to a resort somewhere tropical or warm, instead of a over packed floating tenement.

Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Anything you wanted to do costs $$$$$ and very expensive
Children's Programs
My boys said that the staff were playing games and the kids were not able to play ping-pong and various other games....
Nothing special.....
Service and Staff
Almost all the staff barely can speak English and there is a huge language barrier.
Food and Dining
Abundant amounts of Gross food, tons of waste due to food tasting like school cafeteria food...but worse....
