The skip's decor was nice but the food was really below par! We tried the main dining room the first two night and did not like the food so we tried the Italian place that we had to pay $15 a person for. The food, the atmosphere and service was great. Couple more nights in the dining room...not that great so and we decided to try the Steak house which cost $39 per person. It was honestly the worst steak i have had and my husband loves steak so we have eaten a lot of them! This restaurant was trying to be so upscale that they really missed the mark from the appetizer to the desert. I would not recommend you spend your money on this restaurant. The shows on the ship were below par also. I have been on 6 cruises and this ship had the worst shows of then all. We loved the comedy shows! Just get there early so that you can get a seat and a drink. As far as excursions..Deep Sea fishing should be called Deep Sea Trolling. We got to hold the rod for 30 sec as we pulled the fish in. The boat ride as relaxing, but it was not what we expected. The best part of the trip was an excursion that was not one of carnivals. We went to Mr. Sancho's beach resort. WONDERFUL! Food, drink, wait staff and beach was great. Very relaxing and wonderful way to end the cruise. This resort is a 15 min tax (there are plenty) for $20 for two people. Highly recommend! Hope this review helps
