Review Summary

This is our third cruise on this beautiful ship.  As always, the food was superb and the service was excellent.


We jumped on this cruise for the itinerary - two over nights in New Orleans during the Mardi Gras.  We feel this is the most economical way to see the Mardi Gras. There is a street car stop right outside the cruise terminal in New Orleans.  


Overall, a great cruise!!

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin is very spacious with plenty of closet space. Bathroom is large and plenty of shelf space.

Ship Tip

Do a search online for grandstand tickets if you are going on the Mardi Gras cruise. The price for the tickets are much more reasonable than getting them from the ship.
