The Good - The Bad

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa
After 32 cruises, I thought that I should write at least 1 review.

The real Good is the Thirsty Frog Red draft beer

The ship may be old but it is quite comfortable

The muster station was on deck 10 but you can't get to 10 (Pool & Buffet) by elevator; you can only go to 9 by elevator.

The cabins (at least ours) don't have plastic cups, only bulky glass & there not in the bathroom. Bring a cup from somewhere else for brushing teeth, taking meds etc. But hide it or the cabin steward will take it.

The pool is small & has quite sides

Swim & Beach towels are in the cabin so you don't have to go to the pool deck when going onshore

The Casino is NOT generous but IS smokey

The food seemed to be about the same as all the other cruise lines. Scrambled eggs tasted like powder eggs. Good Mongolian Wok & decent strength coffee unlike RCCL' STRONG coffee Less
