Affordable cruise. The worst thing is the pool is horrible - tiny and people stuffed in shoulder to shoulder. Very unappealing I did not go near it. Same with hot tubs. Not sure how 2000ish people are expected to use the pool. Food in ... Read more

The entertainment was limited. Nothing started for the adults until 9. The comedy club was not open for 2 nights in a row, so they were really crowded.....The piano bar is not worth even trying. It was the same style music throughout the ... Read more
