Review Summary

They need to work on the food, not quality, but serve different kind of food, not the same thing day after day. Too many spring breakers, the bartenders did not follow the law and I personally saw kids (looking like 17/18) drunk and with water battle filled up with hard liquor.

They paint the banister on 2nd cruise day and the wet paint sign was in the glass for the rest of the cruise, not a good move.
