cant say enough. very professional , friendly

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
easy to and fro (forward and aft) clean and maintained. Some doors to 3rd deck broken and locked and no signs. Then unlocked and swung open so hard almost hit a patron. Some areas need more work on repair. Clean windows more so we can view better

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
clean, comfortable, just enough room. TV was very fuzzy and was not able to enjoy some viewing or night movies
