This was a spring break cruise. So, if all you care about is a cheap accommodation, "all you can eat" processed food with 24/7 availability, sugary umbrella drinks, public and private areas where you can tell the space is a petrie dish of germs, public bathrooms where out of control guests get "sick" on a nightly bases and a ship that is badly in need of a refresh-then this boat and cruise company is for you! The decor of the boat feels like a bad Tim Burton nightmare with garish colors and gold accents all over the boat. The main dining room, Bacchus is an over the top grape themed space with waiters that are more focused on moving the masses through their daily food gorge than providing customer focused service with quality meals. The Gym is made up of out of date equipment, most of which do not work. And if you think the wifi will keep you connect to work while on the cruise, forget it. Even if you purchase the most expensive package, it only works in certain parts and not at all if your room is on the ends of the ship. And if you go to Customer Service to address the issue, their response "yep, we know it does not work everywhere and too bad". If I had to do it all over again, I would not have gone on this cruise. Everyone in our group of 20 people had stomach issues with the food at some point in the cruise. Mexico seemed clean by comparison!

If cheap is all you care about!

Cabin Review

Vista Suite
Cabin VS
My Vista Suite has seen better days! The carpet was badly stained and sticky with grim. The furniture was soiled and showing thread worn areas on the arms of the chair. The "leather" sofa was a sorry sagging extra bed that was very uncomfortable for anyone that tried it out. The bathroom had mold growing around the tub and shower doors, which rattled 24/7 due to the suites location over the propellers at the back of the boat. The AC in the room will not get over 72 (which is considered cold by the ship's staff, and can not go below 70). The wooden drawers of the dressers have stains in the interior and the closet is a complete joke. This is one of their "best" rooms on the boat. I wonder what they consider an average room!
