THis had to be the biggest cash Grab in the history of cruising we were barely sailing and they were flogging the next cruise
Always somone trying to sell you a drink
Don't use the internet its slower than dial up and you are paying for it 55 minutes 100 bux you get 1 internet minute and pay 3 more waiting
Rooms were beautiful Staff were Top Notch
Food was edible ok
activities were non existant
unless of course you wanted to pay to play bingo or pay at the casino
Pool outside is ok if the weather is warm Nov though not cold was still too cool to swim

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We had bought a Honeymoon Package whice included the cover charge in one of the specialty restaurants only to find that the only appealing food we would eat cost ANOTHER 10 BUX /PERSON ON TOP OF THE ALREADY IN PLACE COVER<>
