Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Good in the buffets was good, Cagney's steakhouse was aweful! Do not waste your money. Nothing like what we experienced at Cagney's on the Escape.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Very old ship and not a lot of activities. No movie my the pool, no rock climbing, slides, etc. Husband couldn't even enjoy driving range, it was not usable.

Entertainment was nothing and basically non existent. If you do not read your daily activity let you will miss whatever is going on bc they do not advertise/promote otherwise.

Children's Programs

Traveled without children

Service and Staff

The only reason this gets a the ok rating is bc of our stateroom attendant, Matt (Hernandez?). The bartenders are ok, the female at the outside buffet needs a new job!

I went in with the understanding that the cabin was small, etc. But... To not have hot water or just freezing child for 3 out of the 5 nights is unacceptable! The worst party was when i turned on the sink one morning and sewage, yes, feces type of sewage came up out of the shower drain. It took 3 complaints t finally get it fixed. Totally gross and don't bother complaining to the ppl at the main desk, they are so overwhelmed with other complaints, they don't care!

Ship tip

Don't go!!! We only send bc we wanted to go to Ciba. Go on carnival! You think the open bar is a bonus and "free" but it is not free, nothing is. You end up paying for it on the price of the cruise.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

Do not pay ahead of time for an excursion, like they say or you cannot get off the ship. Pure BULL!!! We spent $200 on an excursion (2ppl) for the rum museum that costs $7 to get in! I repeat, you DO NOT need an excursion booked prior to getting off the ship.

Lines were long but that was expected.
