Review summary

Had a great time, except for coming down with bronchitis due to awful second hand smoke in the casino, a visit to the medical clinic on the ship, and the $500.00 bill. The Doctor was very nice and so we're the nurses. If I hadn't had treatment, I would I gotten pneumonia. Ports of call were great! Would sail again!

The only complaint I have is that the casino is not smoke free! As a result, I got bronchitis which ruined the last 2 days of my cruise. I had to go see the ship's doctor, which cost me $500.00. and did not get to snorkel in Barbados. Seriously, these casinos need to be smoke free.

Needs to be smoke free!!!! I got bronchitis from only being in there a few hours on 2 evenings! The " smoke free slot machines " are a joke. Because some chimney is always lighting up right next to it.
