It was a good cruise

Sail Date: December 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship age really shows. I felt the staff cleaned it the best they could, but somethings were just slap warn out...nothing could be done about that. The bathrooms had rust and mold in the showers. I still think the staff did the best they could. The food could have been better. The sit down dinners was best. It at least was hot and not luke warm. The food tasted like it was prefab food. The sauage did not look like real meat. Alot of it look like pre cooked food that was heated up. That was disappointing. The soft serve ice cream was good.

Pros: The staff was great, and friendly and very helpful. This was our first cruise and the staff was really great!

Cons: There were a lot of chances to eat at the buffets, however the food was not good nor was it hot. The food seemed like there were a lot of precooked food that was heated up.
