Cruise was nice, but on par with Princes

Sail Date: March 10, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Overall the cruise was good, great stops, the entertainment was horrible, same singers and dancers throughout the cruise, they were at best OK, there was a magician on board who performed, and you could see him pulling things out of his jacket!
Cruise director was great! very friendly! They just brought him onboard maybe to boost entertainment value.
Staterooms are advertised as some of the biggest in the cruise industry, but when furnished, were cramped even for 2 people.
NO laundery facilities on board, so bring plenty of clean clothes, they will do the laundry for you, but it is like $3.50 for a pair of pants.

Pros: Itinerary

Cons: Entertainment, organization
