Sail Date: Mar 2019

This trip was the time of my life. I had a great time. I went for Spring Break and I am in my early twenties.

Before the cruise, I had grown skeptical due to the size and age of the ship. I noticed that there weren't as many activities as the big ships had. Well, let me tell you, I was wrong. Even though there weren't as many things to do on a bigger ship I found myself occupied at all times.

For one, if you drink at all, GET THE DRINKING PACKAGE. If you think you'll spend less money just purchasing the drinks on your own, then you're probably right, BUT it takes the motivation away of even drinking. I purchased the package and drank more than my money's worth and as freely as I wanted due to the fact of me knowing that it was already paid for. I 100% recommend the drinking package. IT IS WORTH IT. GET IT.

Cabin Review

Cabin Ocean View (Riviera Deck)

It was fine. Only issue is that since it is a little old, the showers look a little bit dusty. The beds were super comfortable.
