We had a blast on my birthday! Don't bother with any packages, although I heard the swimming with the pigs excursion was fun. The casino and dealers were great and never crowded. My only regret was not swapping contact info with Cicely and Curtis! The drinks were expensive, but soglad we didn't buy a package! We did get a bottle of wine for our stateroom which was a good call! You won't go ...

We booked this cruise as part of the heroes deal (buy one get one free) and unfortunately the price was the only thing was too good to be true. We purchased the drink package which in includes 10 drinks for two days; not advised if all you consume is beer as it only really worth it for liquor and mixed drinks. The drinks varied in tastefulness from bar to bar, but nonetheless the bar tenders ...

As the title suggested, this was our first cruise and we did the Heroes Sail Free promo. We sailed without kids. After reading reviews, we went in with low expectations. We ordered the License to Chill package based on the embark/disembark process we read about in reviews and we already had the boat drinks package, so we upgraded. You’ll really have to gauge whether the boat drink package is worth ...

Free service members cruise which really wasn’t free at all in total we spent almost a grand. But we loved it. If you try and go cheap and not do the license to chill package you will regret it. We got on and off easily no hassle. Treated special with this package. Every event we got up front prime seating. Met friends and had a literal blast!!!! We have cruised before ten years ago but we really ...

Review of Margaritaville Check in/Arrival •Long drive to West Palm/Riviera Beach, FL so we spend money for a hotel night before. •Parking is $22/day (total $44) & it’s valet only. So you pull up, you get out, & you rush to take your stuff out lol. •The check in process has no order. It starts at 10:30 and stops at 4:00pm. Ship leaves 5-5:30pm. Do you stand around until you can start ...

Ok, so this was our first time cruising, so we decided to take a short cruise. Trip was booked 3 weeks ahead, just to get there and hear that we were not in their system and someone else was assigned to the room we had on our reservation. They fixed that and assigned us new rooms and we boarded the ship. My husband and I are lying on the bed waiting for departure and the door opens. It’s a ...

GREAT CRUISE BUT IMPORTANT INFO IN REVIEW

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

We chose this cruise due to getting a great deal on GovX.com and it was our first cruise and only 3 days so we thought it'd be a great starting place. While the cruise was fun and super casual there is not alot of information on their website to prepare you which is what I'm going to give you so keep reading. Yes it's alot but I'm literally handing you your cruise pamphlet on a platter. In case ...

I went on this cruise because of the Hero's Sail Free Special and I felt like I made a HUGE mistake. 1) The are so many hidden fees, the free cruise ends up costing more than going on other cruise lines. This is the Spirit Airlines of the Seas. I have more respect for Spirit because they at least tell you upfront the fees associated with their airlines as this cruise line does not. 2) I ...

We thought this cruise was better than expected. The boarding was pretty good. They won't tell you to see the 'Dine" person to let them know you want early or late seating. Avoid the line preboarding for excursions as when you board you'll walk right past them with no waiting. We were able to get in our room right at 2:00 (they started boarding at noon instead of 1) The room is a lot bigger than ...

Does Jimmy Buffet know?? Such a disappointment!! The ship was dirty, old, rusty bathrooms with toilet seats that fell off the toilets. Our room smelled like dirty kitty litter. The crew was very rude, waiters and waitresses blatantly walked by our table and never stopped for drink orders. We ended up getting our drinks ourselves. The food was awful but the pizza was good. Entertainment ...
