  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
  1. The title says it all! Nothing for the younger crowd. This caters to the 50 plus group.

  2. Service was excellent!

  3. They cram liquor down your throat! I understand that's where the money is but wow!

  4. Excursions. Ehh....ok. I did better with a guy in a van! And MUCH CHEAPER!

  5. The ship was super clean!

  6. Entertainment....not for me on this ship. And everyone goes to bed at 9! THIS IS FOR THE OLDER CROWD! If you want to relax and do nothing...this is YOUR cruise!

  7. Food was good....but all the "extra" restaurants were also crammed down your throat as no one would eat there! No coffee shops no snack shops, nothing.

  8. Disembarkation, IMPRESSIVE! Customs....I didn't see any! NO ONE SAID A WORD! Had a neighbor that bought $400 in tequila, they didnt even ask to hold it when he boarded! We were told to just take it to our room! When we left the ship no one cared what we had! Not even a customs form! It was great!

  9. Great ship, great line but I'm going back to RC and fight the crowds!

Nice but all the formica was coming off the countertos. As if there wasn't enough glue applied. Had a great deck though!
