Review summary

Think of this ship like a grandma – you love her but she’s no supermodel, and she’s not modern or current. But you love her anyway because she’s totally and unapologetically herself. She’s earned that. Some people “get” her and some don’t but she’s not going to change. She’s grandma. If you can think of this ship like that, you’ll have a great time. It is dated. It lacks a few activities. It doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles. But any cruise is what you make of it and this one will not disappoint if you can love her for what she is and manage expectations. Don’t overpay and you’ll have a blast.

Onboard Activities

Activities were not plentiful and varied compared to other lines we’ve cruised (Princess, Norwegian, Carnival) and this was very noticeable with three of the 7 days at sea. We had a GREAT time anyway! But yeah, not great.

Entertainment

Entertainment was good.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Older but clean. Lots of storage. The AC was out of control and we froze for the first two days. Engineering fixed it for us (at 9pm after our stew called twice). All good but the cabin is dated. It was small for a mini suite. We didn’t care. We had a great time.

Ship tip

Do your research and manage expectations. This is not a new ship

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

3 out of 5
Eh. Mardi Gras was interesting (they celebrate for weeks) so if you like seafood and drunks, this port may be your jam.

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Blue Lagoon island was gorgeous. Next time we’d skip VIP Blue Lagoon excursion and go mainstream- it was overpriced for what it offered us - but overall a great experience.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

Disembarkation

It was crowded. We carry bags on and off and didn’t expect lines or waiting- but wow, it was chaos. Took forever. The staff did their best but overall took too long.
