Sail Date: Aug 2014

Plenty of food, but was just, "okay", nothing to rave about. Pool?? DISGUSTING!!! No bigger than a bath tub, have to climb way up to get into, and was very small for a ship with that many people on it. Hot tub?? was a joke! 4 people and you were elbow to elbow with each other, crammed in there. TERRIBLE! If you are unable to get around,wheelchair,etc. or can't get off the ship when it docks you are screwed, there is NOTHING to do on the ship to accommodate your time, the casino is closed until 5 or even later. Shops are closed, etc. Lots of drunks go on cruises, I found out, they will talk your ear off, wanted or unwanted, annoying to say the least. Access to alcohol all day long for those who drink but not other activities. Almost the same entertainment every day and night.First cruise for me I hope in the future IF I do take another I am better satisfied...
