The ship seemed old certain lounges smelled like smoky motel rooms , the cabin was clean but once again out dated, Plumbing issues on my floor for three of the four nights It smelled like pure poop on deck 5. Dining was ok it would have been nice to have a vegetarian option in fine dining each night they charged us $14.50 a day each person for restaurant dinning find out if its optional because they use a lot of the buffet food expect for maybe steak, Entertainment would have been nice to be able to go to every activity but it seems like they were all going on at the same time, Service was good, Port of tampa was easy to go through however BEWARE, they lie to you to get you to book an excursion in CUBA threats of IRS audits and even cuban police arresting you if you don't book an excursion. You dont have to if you don't want to!!! on there paper work I choose #4 other and checked of for the Cuban people, ALSO be prepared for the $75.00 Cuban Visa fee for each person. CUBA Old Havana looked like a war zone and or like an earthquake hit. People begging on the streets. Very sad to say the least. I made the best of it went to the cathedrals an walked to the museums, food was horrible eat a hardy breakfast bring snacks eat on the boat!! BRING TOILET TISSUE and lots of dollar bills and fives they tell you you have to change currency but i saw a lot of American money being exchanged in CUBA AND BUY A CASE OF WATER its gets costly. Aside from booking cost, I spent and additional $700 over my budget in unexpected fees and and I was not partying or gambling every night either!!! look on line for your parking needs its over $140 parking at the port. Key West was the best part of my trip but this particular cruise I would not go again.
