The good, the bad, and the ugly...


If you have never been on another cruise, then you will probably enjoy this one..

Having said that, we have been on just about all the different cruise lines...


The Good.... the entertainment on this ship was probably the best on any ship that I have seen... Our cabin steward was excellent, was always smiling and very upbeat.. I truly believe she wanted to make us happy...


The Bad...We got a balcony cabin that was by far the smallest balcony cabin we have ever had... The balcony itself was so small that you could not have a chaise lounge chair on it... If you set on the chairs, you could not see anything through the dirty glass on the deck... We went on a Carnival cruise last year and got a suite for about the same price that we payed for the balcony cabin on this ship... It had a much bigger room and the balcony had two chaise lounge chair on it...


The Ugly.... Food was horrible in the dining room... the food on the Carnival ship was much better.. out of desperation, we went up to the buffet... The food in the buffet was not much better, and was lukewarm at best, which made me nervous because I know food should be held at a certain temperature.. On the sixth floor of the ship was their casino... The smoke in the casino was just about unbearable... The whole sixth floor smelt of smoke... All the bars on the ship were understaffed... There were only two people in each bar, one waiting on the tables and the other mixing drinks.. You could tell they were all over worked because none of them smiled or were congenial.... I was sitting at the card table in the casino and was trying to get a drink but to no avail... Then I went up to the bar, and I could see why.. Even though the casino was packed they were still only one bartender and one waiter..


I could not recommend this cruise to anybody who was ever been on another cruise ship...
