If you a looking for a luxury cruise, this is not the one for you. I don't mean that as a negative statement. The ship is old and a bit out dated but it was clean and well maintained. I went with the intention of turning off my phone, reading a few books, seeing the shows and getting a tan. That is exactly what I accomplished. The food was not gourmet or 5 star but there was plenty of it and many choices. It was sometimes difficult to get a cocktail, very different than past cruises where waiters constantly ask you if you wanted one. On the pool deck as well as the main buffet I was never approached by a server and asked if I cared for a drink (I was in the main dining room)

Again, this cruise is a value 3 day get a way and it is what you make it
