The itinerary was good. The ship was dated and seemed disorganized at times it seemed this was the first cruise it had been on.

Upon embarking the ship we were invited to eat at the Horizon Buffett which has the worst lay out and not enough seating for all of the new passengers embarking. Food is not good and it is the same food offered the entire week. The Dinning room food was not good either we ate there two nights, we ended up eating off the ship or eating pizza. We did eat at one of the other choices which was the Crown Grill service and food was worth the $29.00 fee.

Our stateroom was nice enough for an inside cabin with loads of closet space.

Drink service around the pool area's were almost not happening. In 5 hours we were asked once if we wanted a drink.

Entertainment on Sea days was lacking. But the evening shows were pretty good.

This cruise seems to be most popular among an older crowd. Lots of scooters wheel chair ect......

Getting off the ship was a big mess. Took us one hour to actually make it to immigration. They called almost everyone one to get off at once. We were walk off number one.

All in all it was a good cruise, but the ship has no Wow factor at all....Just a very basic nothing to really brag about cruise. I would not take this ship again.
