Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was good. But the service was very poor if you were not buying a lot of alcohol

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
The activities on this ship would bore your 80 year old grandma. And everything was geared toward selling you something


1 out of 5
The comedian told jokes that my 5 year old had told me in the past. He was not prepared

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
The staff quickly saw how was spending lots of money on booze and who was not and ignored those that were not big spenders

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was bigger than I expected. There was a drip in the shower that kept me up at night and the conditioner despencer was broken.
