Near Perfect Cruise Ship

Sail Date: September 20, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This cruise ship is oddly designed.  Passengers were rude, mind you they majority of the passengers were older than 35.  Even a fight broke out by the pool area.  Passengers smoked without even given other passengers the common courtesy of asking if they could light up.  Smoking should be ban at all areas where the majority of the passengers met and a designated area for smokers only should be instituted.  Before entering the casino which is smack in the middle of the cruise ship it reeks of cigarette smoke. I dubbed that the "toxic zone" and tried to avoid it which was nearly impossible.  The casino should be located at the back of the ship so that passengers can avoid it if the smell of smoke makes them sick.  Other than that it was a good cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was clean and Geoffrey was excellent.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
It has poor design. See my comment above. I got extremely ill because of the passengers smoking when there were large crowds outdoor. That should be banned. The ship was clean though.
Destinations and Excursions
Went on the shipwreck snorkel tour. The guide was rude, they only afforded you a noodle to keep you afloat. I didn't see any life vests on board even though they said they had one. If that were true they would have given them to the non-swimmers on the boat. One passenger was going under and the guide had to jump in to get her. Not once were they in the water monitoring the snorklers.

Food and Dining


The Manhattan Room is a nice place to have dinner. They put on shows while you are eating.
