The ship is small but still very nice. Very easy to get around. We booked just to go to Bermuda. You can feel everything on this ship. We have been on several luding smaller ships and never had an experience like this. It felt like a bad amusement ride that no one would let you off of. Cruise line said it was typical for this time of the year. My whole family was very sick. Bermuda was wonderful. We will definately go back by plane. Average cruise age was 60+.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Everything about the dinner dining was very good. The food wasn't great but it was average. Breakast and Lunch at the Buffets were always the same and not very good. Service was always excellent.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Small but nice. Easy to find someone in your party. Not many places to hide. Only 1 small pool. Hard to get a chair in the sun.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Very small but nice rooms. Pack things that you can hang up as space is limited.

Pros: Easy to get around

Cons: You could feel this boat move
