We were excited to go on this cruise because two in the party have never cruised on a cruise ship before. The service was lack luster. The food was alright. The tacos and the jerked food were the best. Half Moon Cay was the best port that we pulled in to. Do not expect anything above average on this ship. They allow children to run around the halls all night with out holding parents accountable. Guess where the parents are... that is right.. in the bar getting hosed. The beds were nice. I would have picked a different boat if I could have knowing the info. They nickle and dime you for everything. I would choose your time dinning. This would insure that you get to see the shows. Comedy was one of the best things to due on the ship. The slides were fun and the ropes course was neat. Seems like some of the kids were having a hard time getting their safety harness around the bends though. The only 4 of the heated loungers worked. the steam saunas worked but the dry heat sauna never worked.. The Spa is only interested in selling you overpriced stuff after your over priced treatments. 170 bucks for 10 sea weed bath treatments.. 17 bucks PER BATH. no.

Not worth the money

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 6B 1464
Beds were ok. Corner of the room was starting to separate from its housing. We had to complain about the cleaning. Dishes were not being removed from the room when they cleaned. No towel animals were provided the first two nights.
Deck 2 Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins

  • Snorkeling
    Should have been canceled. It was COLD the water was choppy and it was RAINING.

    IT was fun. I could not hear the tour guide because the speed boat was loud. The rest of the trip was fun. Fair warning.. you WILL get soaking wet. You will have to walk to where the boat is being kept but it is not to long of a walk.
