Like the smaller ships, and enjoyed the ports in the Southern Caribbean although 5 in a row left us tired and worn out. Should break up the port days with a day at sea. Staff always friendly, guest services always promptly answered your calls with satisfaction to your inquiries. Main dining room food quality great, service was SLOW though and not always did you receive what you ordered. Onboard selection of entertainers very good, and on-board 'company' dancers/singers always put on quality shows. Ship is old, casino very old, but ship well kept and clean. Avoid Bingo. Embarking quick, dis-embarking had major glitch and 1hr delay with port personnel not ships fault. Will not go on this ship again, not enough 'there' to want to go back to. Excursion staff very friendly and will go out of their way/the extra mile. We had mixed up our port dept time, and would have missed the excursion otherwise had they held the bus for us and had one of their personnel WALK us there! It turned out to be the best excursion boat trip too! RCI did not impress us as being so much better or worse than other lines to either avoid or only cruise with them either.

Clean, comfortable. Well taken care of although it was dated.
