Review summary

Not the best or worst experience. Goal was reading, relaxation, and beaches. Two out of three, not bad. Too cold to enjoy beaches. Also, the ship is old, tired, and in need of renovation.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Lots of karaoke, lots of trivia.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Two of the evening stage shows were knock-out excellent. Others were ok. Wish there had been more options for dancing.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff are all friendly, smiling, and service oriented.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Clean, but ship is very tired looking. Chairs in showroom are awful and hugely uncomfortable.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Actually, we upgraded to an ocean view on the 8th floor. The cabin was typical (small, small bath) but the bed was the most uncomfortable bed we've ever slept on. Though our room steward was outstanding.

Ship tip

This is a tired and old ship, that visits only 3 ports. As such, 4 days are at sea on a ship that does not offer much in the way of good entertainment. Spend more for a better ship with better amenities and attractions.

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

4 out of 5
If you like partying, this is a great place. If you love great food, this is the place for you.

Key West, Florida

3 out of 5
No real beach to enjoy. Town is small. January is not the best time to visit. We actually had to purchase a sweat-shirt as it was cold (45 degrees).

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

4 out of 5
January was not the best month to visit. It was still too cold to enjoy the water. Though the set-up is ideal with lots of fun water activities (beach, pools, water amusement park, volley ball, etc.)

Nassau, Bahamas Did not visit port

This port visit was cancelled due to high winds. Captain said not safe to port.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Done well.
