Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

Many crew members seem to act more like Nazis then friendly people.  Bed was very uncomfortable, we had to have 2 pads put on to make it somewhat ok.  Rooms are super small.  Food was okay but there were some items that were terrible.  They closed the back bar very early forcing you into the pool area where they played the music very loud even though there were only 12 of us in there!  (Not talking about the White Hot Party Night).  I found activites hard to find the times and what was going on.  Price dropped alot and was only given 25% on board credit to make up the difference then on the ship found out the price dropped even more.  Food selection was very limited.  One night all 3 of their "new" appitizers had onions in it for example.  I didn't eat one dessert that I wanted to eat again and I usually eat 2 desserts on cruises.  Do not order what they call "Rib Eye Steak", you will get an 1/8" cut of meat which is better suited for a steak sandwich.  Most of the staff was good but the nazis made it tough to deal with.

Limited choices, bad desserts and steak, rest was only ok

Small beach and basically you have to pay to get shade.


The back bar area is great except after 9pm because it is closed.
