When someone calls and uses the word “free” just hang up the phone! We received a “free” cruise for doing a phone interview. I knew that I would have to pay port fees but everything else was a lie! Lie after lie and fee after fee! We stayed at the Ramada for two nights as part of the package with three free meals. Again, there is that word “free.” The food was horrible and we had to pay a tax on top! We also had to pay a tax for the two-night stay. The morning of the cruise, we had to go to a “2-hour” tour about the time share. Ok, I have been to one these before and NEVER had so much trouble!! After MUCH complaining, we were able to get out of there with our cruise vouchers after 2hr and 45 min! Most people we talked to didn’t get out until 3-5 hours!!! I don’t know how that are allowed to treat people that way. The boarding of the ship began at 12pm. The port was an hour away, which we were never told and they were going to charge us $30 each to take their shuttle!! There was only one shuttle and it didn’t leave until 2:30pm! Had we waited for the shuttle, we would have missed half a day on the ship and lunch! We ended up riding with someone that had a car. Plus, some woman had the audacity to tell us that we wouldn’t be able to board anyway until at least 4pm because of the lines. We had our passports and didn’t have to wait more than about 30 minutes to board! Once on board, it was decent and the staff was very friendly. That was a breath of fresh air from how we were treated prior to boarding the cruise ship. My husband and I were getting away for a short trip for our 15-year anniversary. I was only able to finally relax once we finally got on board the ship. What a joke! By the time we paid all of the fees and travel costs, we probably paid full price for the 2-night cruise! Nothing “free” is worth it! Read Less

This was the only cruise I have ever been on. Everything was mess. We were told that we could check in at 10am, board the ship at noon, rooms at 2pm and that our luggage would be waiting for us in our rooms. 10am check in- the lady was very slow and made several remarks about how she hated her job. Boarding the ship- it was almost 1pm before we could board the ship 2pm room check in- got to our room, there was no luggage. We were told that we would have our luggage by 5pm. I actually went and found my own luggage and took it back to the room. We came in from KY and were not dressed for the higher temps. Room- the room was not clean, there was trash under the bed and brown/reddish stains on the bathroom wall. Staff- the staff was very rude. On several occasions, the staff was so rude and spoke very little english. Food was not good at all and was served only at certain times, anything outside of the set times was for an extra charge. All entertainment you had to purchase tickets. Terrible experience. The excursion was worth the money, around $100 for a snorkel/kayak adventure. Read Less

This was my first time on a cruise and I ignored all the bad reviews when I wish I had listened! I have heard many people talk about other cruise lines where the food is great and you can eat any time. That wasn't the case here. The best food came out at 11pm, where you can have onion rings, chicken tenders, tacos. The food during the day is not very good. They only have four places you can eat, The Ocean Breeze Buffet, The Admirality Club, ($20 extra) The Stellar Prime and the Pico Bar. There is no 24 hour restaurant on the boat. The Ocean Breeze, which stays open the latest, closes at 2am. However, you can't eat because the crew is standing over the food or trying to sell you drinks! The only entertainment is a show at 9:45pm, filled with people trying very hard to pull you into liking their presentations, pay a halfway funny comedian an extra $13 bucks or karaoke by the pool. Last I hope they get rid of the woman that works with Customer Service on deck 5! Despite her rudeness, she practically laughed at us after we left the desk to enquire about the $50 credit they decided not to give us. Do yourselves a favor and save for a bigger name cruise line where you can really enjoy yourself! Read Less
