Review Summary

This was a fun short cruise. Many options were available for entertainment. The service and quality of food was above average in the dining venues. Major complaint is that the ship is old and a bit shabby, staterooms really need some updating.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was good in both the casual and formal dining areas. However, the kitchen seemed to be slow in getting meals prepared in a timely fashion. Dinner in the formal rooms was a two hour affair, often with a wait of up to an hour for main courses to appear. The service provided by the waitstaff was excellent, however


3 out of 5
Many activities were scheduled daily, and most were well organized and presented. The entertainment staff was very good.

While the public ares and staterooms were clean and pleasant but outdated

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The staterooms were very small and outdated, the furniture appeared obviously worn. Television had a 13 inch screen. The bathroom was tiny with mold on the shower curtains and stains and discoloration on the walls and floor.

The seven mile beach was lovely.

Snorkeling in the warm, crystal clear blue waters was a treat not to be missed

Pros: excellent service
