I chose this cruise for the itinerary and that it ended in Galveston, close to home. The food was vey good, nice variety. The service was especially nice. The ship is older but it has been maintained very well. Because the ship is smaller than the newer ones, it has less activities but it was fine for us. There is of course a casino, bingo, contests, etc. There was pleanty for someone to do. We had My Time dining and we were usually seated in the same area each night with the same wonderful waiters. We prefer the dining room for all meals but we did try the Windjammer several times and they had a good variety of selections. As a Diamond Plus member I was able to visit the Concierge Lounge and the Diamond Lounge. The Concierge Lounge service was superb! The Diamond Lounge was very slow. It was overall a wonderful cruise!
