Would never recommend to anyone to take this cruise. The ship is clean, but worn. The rooms are fine for a quick three day cruise. The staff was friendly and kept things cleaned and replenished. They only do room service once a day, but for a short trip that was ok. We opted for mornings. The food was mediocre. They didn’t change the buffet offerings. They did have a Mandorin, pizza, bbq and burger station, but with the exception of the pizza station (another story), they closed at 5-6pm for the evening. Then your only food option was the buffet or dining hall. All day you could get pizza, however it was small 10” personal pizzas made in small quantities, and cut in half. Kind of made to order, but really slow, and had long lines. Their drinks are expensive, and they add a gratuity to each drink. Depending on your drinking habits the package CHEERS, maybe a better deal. We didn’t purchase but we’re way under had we purchased. They make both people in a room buy it, and if one doesn’t drink, you’re screwed. Embarking went well, and organized, however disembarking has a lot of room for improvement. They made provisions for wheeled chair people, but people with canes were pretty much on their own. We finally asked because two members of our party couldn’t walk the distance and a staff person cut us in line. There were lots of groups, wedding parties, bachelor groups, and mostly was an under 40 crowd. They do have an adult only area which we discovered on the day of the Bahamas, so we stayed on ship and enjoyed the area. They have a huge bottled water in your room and charge $3:95 to use it. That’s pathetic. Bottled water is so cheap, they should be giving them to each room. The band Blue Wave was very good. They are almost too talented for this ship, they were very entertaining. The first day out to sea they had dancing on the pool deck, they shot off streamers which went up and into the ocean. I was pretty appalled by that. That is an unnecessary activity. Personally this is one of the worst cruises I’ve ever been on. It was just a three day get away, but next time I will go on another line.

Worst cruise ever

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8E 8396
It was adequate, but just under the dining hall. Constant carts being wheeled at night. The rooms are thin, and the balcony noise can be heard in the room. We had an over parties on our last night who constantly laughed and talked real loud til 1am. It was annoying.

The room was clean, but worn and outdated. The bed slept ok, we didn’t spend a ton Of time in the room.

This room is also loud from the engine noise. If you can avoid aft on this ship, do.
