Review Summary

overall the ship is older and smaller than most. there are not many things to do, but this can be good if you want to unplug and relax.

This was seamless and quick. Get to the port early, and if you are local get a car service or friend to drive.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
the ship is older and smaller than others, that said not a bad design and was clean. Our cabin window had caulking that was coming off and the inside of the window was dirty.

Ship Tip

get the drink package if you drink. pay tips upfront it is not as much. watch for sales, call and make changes and always ask about upgrading your cabin
