This was the worse cruise ever. My husband and I decided to take a 2 day cruise with our children so they xould experience whats it like being on a cruise. My children had a horrible time and was crying ready to go back home. I felt awful because it was my childrens first time cruising and I wanted them to enjoy this cruise. When we first arrived the lunch meal was ok very bland but ut was ok. ALL the drink was horrible. The next norning the breakfast was horrible seemed like they was serving us old food. Everything was pretty much hard and stale. The lunch was horrible the burgers swimming in grease, sausage and hot dogs swimming in grease, the fries and ice cream was pretty much the only thing good. Dinner was horrible as well. The first night I ordered salmon and rice with vegetables the rice was sooo mushi. The second night i had the steak and spinach tomatoes with steak fries. The steak tasted like beef jerky, just hard and dry. Forgot to mention when i first got on the cruise and ate when they said our rooms was ready hours later my husband and i and our 3 kids one being in a stroller got stuck in the elevator for about 20 mins with another passenger my kids was crying and scared and me and my youngest baby cant be in tight area for long periods if time so u started having panic attacks smh and was sweating. They gave ne a bottle of nasty wine but all the other drinks on board was horrible. I did buy a sprite here and there but when i seen them adding 18% for each drink i just was like wow this is crazy drinks are akready $2.95 as is. Then i had a card issue i forgot to mention to ny bank i was going out of town so i guess when they tried to take 147 out my account for gratiuluties on my account my bank messaged me asking me was i aware of the charges then we got to deep in the water i lost service. Front desk was kinda rude abiut the situation telling me all i have to do is take out money from the atm its onky a 8.00 fee like no that is entirety to much money. The guy at the desk was more worried about just being paid smh. I had to get 2 rooms because of it being 5 of us. 1 of my rooms bathroom smelt so horrible we had to smell that for 2 days. That same room my sheets had sooo much hair and crumbs on my bed, ehich is just nasty. I called guest services they did come change my sheets but still thst should have been done before i arrived. Now my other room had someones boxers that must of got kicked under the bed and here my 1 year old bringing them to me smh i just freaked out smh thats nasty. Its not much for the kids to do on the cruise so we pretty much stayed in our room. The food was horrible the cruise was just horrible i spent over 1,000 and i just feel like this cruise was a huge scam. They chatge for everything. That 147 gratuity they took out my account they should have just left in my account the room was not ready and nasty so it was pointless for them to take the money out and im a believer of everyone getting tipped for there hard work but this was just nasty. The food was the worse but the fries and icecream so thats what my family pretty much ate. Very very disappointed. I had a few friends talking about going but i will tell them to stay far away..
