Review summary

This was our honeymoon cruise and we only booked it because we were going to Cuba. No one contacted us about our itinerary change so we finally called and they told us we would not be getting a full refund only 25% Back, but could change to another cruise. We asked about the two other cruises around our dates and they told us that was possible, then they said both were sold out. We had no other option but to go. Also they changed our Cuba itinerary to Key West which was a bummer. You would think they would change a country with another country, not an American port 3 and a half hours away from our original port. Also, when we signed up they said they would give us $100 onboard credit, do not believe this. They do this for you to book with them and then hope you forget about it. The staff were really friendly and nice, the best part about the cruise. 42 of us on board we’re getting rashes and decided to figure out what was going on. The water coming out of our sinks and bathtubs were dirty. Sadly we found this out at the end of our cruise, I had taken 3-4 baths in this dirty water not knowing about it. I would not recommend this cruise line to anyone.

Food and Dining

The food was ok, nothing special and small serving sizes. You only get up to $6 drinks when you get the easy drink package.

Onboard Activities

Pool and mini golf was fun, super small pools for that many people.

Room Stewart was excellent, bartenders were amazing. Our waiter was super slow, took about 15 minutes to take our order every night.

The room and deck were amazing, highly recommend. There was dirty water coming out of the sink and the shower which was infuriating. I got a rash from it and we paid a lot of money to be in the suite and then had dirty water.

Ship tip

Don’t do it! It’s the oldest ship in their fleet and it’s very outdated in every way.

Seemed like just set up for a cruise port, however the ruins were amazing!

Cozumel, Mexico

So touristy, only all inclusive resorts.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Best port because there wasn’t a million shops trying to get you to buy things right off the ship.
