Was a decent cruise for the price

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa

The ship was decent we had a grand suite so it does make for a nicer cruise.

Traveling with another family. The kids had a great time really did not see them mush agers 11,12 16 and 17.

The cruise director bubble was great and so funny. We participated in battle of the sexes and other activities. Look lets be honest its an older ship so if you want fancy don’t go here if you want to relax have a decent time see the sites hand out at the clubs catch a show this is priced right.

Our cabin was clean no issues, was it out dated sure but clean it was. The food was decent nothing great nothing bad. The waiter for dinner was great kids loved him he spoke to us and really took care of our families. I have been on NCL since then hated it and will be on the Breeze in 52 days but whos counting. Over all the experience was well worth the money if you go to sit in a cabin don’t go if you go to have fun and participate cruising for you. Less

Cabin review:

Cabin was good nothing fancy clean and well taking care of. Love the mirror with the large vanity cabinet outside. Did not know it was there for a few days but once I did was great. The closet could use a few more hangers but overall was clean and functional. The staff was great and love the towel animals! Was also quiet!
