When you look for cruises and compare prices Princess prices are higher but they cahigh recomendations that you will feel and see an upgradded experience. Pay more you get more, well that's out the window. No problem getting on the ship friends in room 14- 749 had to be temporarily relocated right off the smell in their room was awful (sewage smell) and the floor by the bathroom was saturated. Two days later we would feel the effect our toilets in the room stop flushing, add to that we could not dock for our first port of call. The toilet issues went on for three days. One of the members of our group ended up with the "cruise" virus. On top of that the attention to detail was not up to par neither was the menu selections in the dinning rooms. I have traveled Royal Caribbean and Carnival cruises so I can compare and this was not upscale by no means.
Ship Quality
appearance good but functioning it had problems
Food and Dining
not impressed
Cabin / Stateroom
problem with plumbing
Service and Staff
Dinning room waiting staff very attentive
Children's Programs n/a
Onboard Activities
Galveston, Texas
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras never saw it we could not port
Belize City, Belize
zoo was interesting
Cozumel, Mexico
beaches no problem


At your on risk, I would check to see if ship has had any issues and give it time to resolve them.
