Never Again

Sail Date: May 12, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

The ship was clean and in good condition. They charge you for everything including water. Charging for drinks when you are gambling in a casino is border line criminal. The change in the itinarey really put a damper on the trip only 4 hours in Universal Studios. The specialty restaurants were terrible except for the Brazilian Steakhouse. After being told that we could were dress shorts to Le Bisto by the reservation desk do to it being slow we were told to go change by the host, when we got inside there were several people with jeans and t-shirts. Cagney's steakhouse was horrendous, waited 45 minutes for a water at the table. Finally this was advertised as a Nickelodeon Cruise which is a complete joke they had some small activities for kids and showed up once a day for arts and crafts for a half hour.

Pros: The ship was clean the cruise director was great

Cons: Nickle and Dime you for everything. The itinarey was terrible do the change had only four hours in Universal Studios, for a price of 169.00 per person
