Review summary

This was a great getaway for me with my great friend. Just long enough for some relaxation and nice weather and pampering. I got to see places I had not been before. It was very reasonably priced. I would recommend the cruise to anyone looking for a relatively short experience on a not-too-large ship.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The main dining rooms were mostly good. I was disappointed in the Le Bistro experience. My friend said her food was excellent, but I was expecting something better than what I experienced. It was not bad, just not worth paying the extra. Service was superior, though.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The only thing we did was visited the casino each evening. No other activities really. The casino was very nice. It was never overly crowded and is was easy to find something to play.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
We didn't go to any shows other than heard some of the groups on the 11th deck which were good performances.

Very easy to get around the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
I was surprised how small the cabin was. I could not get my luggage around the first bed to get it over to the second bed. Had to be lifted above the bed. The balcony was roomy. Room was clean and the bathroom adequate, though pretty small. My husband would never have been comfortable in so small a space.

Ship tip

If you have a large person in your party, make sure you know the size of the staterooms.

Loved it. Always wanted to go there. Definitely will go back. We took the trolley tour. Guide was very engaging and funny. It was a good overview of Key West. Enjoyed an art fair going on that day and some shopping and lunch.
