The cruise line has had over 20 years of service with this boat. It is time they replace it.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food and service was great in the main dining area. The buffett needs major improvements from the layout to the actual food being served. There were no other restaurants besides the buffett and the main dining experience.

Just because you are leaving from a port in the south doesn't mean that everyone is a "country bumpkin". Revise your shows.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Dining staff was great in the manin dining room. The crew was not alot of help when you first got on the boat. There was no one to direct you around long buffett lines that were not necessary to stand in. They were not helping people locate tables to sit.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
The carpet needed to be replaced. The ship was dirty in the upstairs buffett.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The air condition was not working properly, so they took the vent off. Not a lot of help.

Shopping was great. Fishing was good even though it was not the best season for it.

Pros: Our waiter and his assistant - The food in the main dinning room

Cons: The ship in several places was hot and dirty. They had blowers with extension cords to help cool some of the areas. The only thing they were missing was the "duct tape".The walls are paper thin - so you can hear everything that goes on on both sides of your room.

Recommends Holiday? No.
