This was the 1st cruise for me & my mom.

Overall - it was a great experience.

Pros - beautiful scenery, great ports, easy embarkation & disembarkation process, very educational, very clean, superb service, lots of free stuff!

The cruise offers great excursions that guarantee you back to the ship on time.

Cons - old & dinghy bedding and carpets, smell in some hallways, small casino, lots of activities scheduled at the same time, lots of long lines! Buffets were just ok.

This ship seemed smaller than other cruise lines that we saw @ ports, this could be why we had so many long lines.



Cabin / Stateroom
Great location. We were in the middle of the ship. Perfect location to elevators. Size was enough for 2 people. Carpets were spotty. Bathroom very clean. 3 outlets available.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Fast and easy embarkation. Disembarkation was easy, but the hoard of people gathering their luggage and leaving was a bit stressful.
Ship Quality
Clean, but old. The bedding were dinghy & had rips and holes. Carpets could use a cleaning.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Some were interesting, but they could use more activities that don't have raffles. I understand that this is a great technique to gather lots of people together to do up sales, but not half or 3/4th of the activities.
Children's Programs
Their entertainment could use some help. Entertainment host is funny, but the shows were not so great.
Service and Staff
Excellent customer service!
Food and Dining
Food in dining room was excellent, buffet was just ok.
