Review summary

I had 3cancellations on the ship before I finally sailed on the Mari Gras,,which I know was not your fault. I liked the restaurants,and the entertainment, disliked the room, way to small. Hard to get to balcony when there are two twin beds. Bathrooms also very small. My phone was to old to get the menus and had to rely on someone else. Never was able to have room service could not get menu . I am not sure if I would ever go back on the ship. You should big chicken sauces on the ship they were really good.

Miserable. I was in a wheel chair and a woman who was directing the crowds would not let me in the disable line. I was also platinum which did not seem to matter.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
If it was not for the food and drinks this cruise would have been like some many others. The specialty restaurants were superb. Did not use the buffets. Did not like people doing it themselves. Guy burgers and big chicken were a big hit.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Pools always crowded. Too many kids in the pools. People holding chairs which they did not use. Through there would be more MariGras atmosphere . More New Orleans theme then a small bar and fortune teller about an hour a day.

The singers and dancers in summer of 69 and the show that also had the electric violins was fantastic. Never saw better shows on any other ship I was on. The blonde boy singer and the two girls were fabulous. Also the 2 singers, I think their names were coco and Calvin were very good also.

Children's Programs

Did not have children with me.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
This ship had the best service and staff . Everyone was friendly and also very helpful. Went to the dining room once for dining and the waiters were excellent. Cabin steward was excellent. Always had the room in tip top shape., and he was always very pleasant and very helpful.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The cabins were much smaller then other ships. The casino was very confusing.There should have been 2 bars one for smokers and one for non smokers. The common areas were always being cleaned and taking care of.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Bed very comfortable. Cabin much smaller. Patio door very heavy and hard to open and close. Should have something to keep cabin door open when bringing something in or out. Bathroom smaller also.

Ship tip

Try big chicken and all the speciality restaurants. They were great.
