Howling at the Moon musicians we’re outstanding! JR, was very talented and friendly. Wine lovers, the Musical was so much fun! Burn the floor was amazing as was Million Dollar Quartet! Jared was fabulous! As Jerry Lee Lewis.

Staff was friendly and efficient! We found the cruise director to be ego-centric and self-absorbed.

Ship Quality

The atrium was too small for the amount of activities held there. Clean always!

It was as advertised. Bed is too close to closet door, but there is lots of storage space.
