This was the first cruise we took. It was fun overall, but the boat was way too small. You could feel every wave that we hit it seamed. Several people in our party were sea sick the first 2 days. The ship staff did a good job keeping the entertainment on a personal level (very friendly crew). The food was okay at best, but the dining staff did a good job (great service).

We took the cruise again 2 years later and nothing had changed. The shows were the same, the decor was still outdated (think burnt orange carpet and tacky paintings on the wall). Menu even appeared to be the same.

Only take this cruise if there is absolutely nothing else available.

Pros: very affordable

Cons: Rocked way too much. Several people sick the first 2 days. felt very cramped (small rooms)
