Chose this one because of the Black Friday deal and had some friends book along with us. Baltimore port was pretty convenient and the check in process went smooth. Very disappointed in the ship itself though. It’s old, needs updating and has very little to do for kids. 5 day to Bermuda only gives you 24 hours there even though itinerary is misleading by showing two days there. Bathrooms are tiny and stink. The staff and crew were great (although the captains announcements are pointless because his accent is so thick you can’t understand what he’s saying). Internet service was sporadic at best. Then I was told by customer service agent it was my Apple phone and not their WiFi. Drink package is a joke. Only 3 soda machines onboard and 90% of the time they were either out of ice, soda or both. This would be fine if advertised as a discount ship, but to consider this part of the RC should be embarrassing for them.

Find another ship...

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 2N 2070
Tiny. Bathroom is even smaller. Shower didn’t drain well. Shower curtain was disgusting.
