If you don't know any better

Sail Date: March 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Galveston

Rooms were already available. We went to the buffet. Not good,food bland and repetitive stations with lines and bad flow. Breakfast at the buffet was yucky, prison eggs for omelets and scrambled, they use prepared milk carton egg product with no telling what was in it. As the cruise progressed we noticed how little live entertainment there was. They had a DJ on the cast off, hey we want a live band that we had on another cruise line. Small pools.

We did the dining room. Weird thing is that they have two separate dining rooms. Not very nice, compared to our other cruises. Sort like a cheap hotel instead of the more ornate dining rooms we have been to. Food was just OK, we had a baked Alaska that was a joke, something you could find at the grocery store frozen food section. Service was a mixed bag, some nights we had good service and then a couple of nights very slow.

Navigating the ship was also cumbersome. It is a good size ship but chopped up in to little More bits. There was not central hangout. The atrium was so ugly, it had all these weird lights and odd colors. There was some live entertainment in the atrium but they were off key and we only saw two different groups. Amateur hour?? Also, there a couple of nights that there was NO production show in the theater, not acceptable. The first production show was mostly talking about the ship. We like trivia, and a couple times, no one showed up to MC. Trivia is also weird as they do not encourage teams as only one prize per team. It is more fun to make friends with trivia. Some pros: Tea time and less smoking areas. Your time is important so I do not recommend. Less

Cabin review: 4E7241 Interior

Hallway noisy. We noticed vents in the doors. Shower always leaked out no matter what.

Nice cruise port. Prices were sort of high. No negotiation.
