Worst experience with a cruise line ever really wish would would have just gone with our gut and went with a cruise line we have actually heard of before big waste of money and they added on a bunch of “service” charges to our final bill that we had to dispute was miserable experience never again!!

Food was the same everyday and bland

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Kiddie pool was almost always closed complained about it and was called a liar!! Shows were so short took longer to explain in every language than the show it self!


1 out of 5
Never have I been on a cruise where onboard activities cost extra what a joke and not to mention the hours of operation for the activities made it almost impossible to do any of them!!

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Went to settle bill and to settle some complaints we had and was repeatedly told I was a liar and that I couldn’t prove anything I was complaining about (like the kiddie pool almost always being closed and then my child getting kicked out of another pool because it was “16+” even tho the pool rules sign specifically said 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult again I proved the signage and was still called a liar!

Ship Quality
