Room Type: Oceanview

The weather was not good and the ship has no stablizers making the cruise very unpleasant. On one occassion the ship was so late in getting into port there was insufficuient time to go ashore. Also it was impossible to get out of the rain and wind on deck even in the enclosed areas. The biggest thing was a constant barrage of selling from performers selling their CD's to Art Shows lasting all thought the trip. If you love the Home Shopping Network you will love this ship. The food was less than gormet to say the least and we never had a nice cup of soup on the whole trip - the chief was from the Dominican Republic if that means anything.
The waiters and the service were very good , two eating areas, the dining room and a buffet bar. The dining room breakfast food was always luke warm and when it was brought the Dining managers attention there still was no change.
Lastly on the last three days of the 11 day trip they ran out of cerial, juice and other breakfast items.
The entertainment however was very good and the performers did a wonderful job. The seating in the upper lever was marred however since there was a guard rail at eye level no matter where you sat that blocked the stage.

Pros: The crew and the service were great

Cons: Constant barrage of selling at every opportunity

The cabins on the upper decks were very good and very clean, we did hear from other passengers on the lower decks that problems of mold and dampness existed.
Key West, Florida
