Fun entertainment, but not the ship.

Needed a cruise that left after Christmas and this fit the bill and was longer than other companies offered. The ship looks like it needs an update. The decorations are outdated and very pink, seats are cracked ...

Teens had fun, but ship is dirty/old and food wasn't great

The cruise director was great. Food wasn't good, and there were very limited options. If you're happy with hot dogs, hamburgers and pizza, then you'll like this cruise. Entertainment was average at best. We had ...
