This is an old gem with poor management. Food was lackluster

Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Balcony

Took cruise because of ease of access from Boston. Overall a very sad ship. Food was lackluster at best. ( except Cagney’s ). Everything is dated and worn. Young crew very helpful but leadership invisible. Worth driving to NYC to get a different ship

Buffet was undersized but food was fair to good. Dining rooms were dark and food very salty. Cafeteria quality food

Pools are not sufficient to support ship and deck furnishings uncomfortable. Activities seemed few and far between.

Clean but small. You can tell it’s age.
