I choose this cruise cause I was looking for specific dates, nothing more. But the experience was awful. I will never ever repeat at lease this cruise again. The icecream here sucks, and what can I say about milkshakes, they are $4.95 and it is the worse I ever tried before, the girl from the musical coffe is not nice at all neither the people from the bars. Nicest people in the ship are the ones you dont have to pay the 18% mandatory tip. Forget about a shrimp in the buffet they just have 3 or 4 types of food options...and no juices at all just synthetic limonade and iced tea, 2% milk and american coffe oh and water. If you take a bottle of wine with u make sure you have something to open it cause they charge $15 fee.. this ship is a joke. If I coul give no star I would.

Nothing was ok here..

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin 4I 196
The cabin was sold for 5 people..WORSE EXPERIENCE EVER. This space is barely for 3 people. Taking into account that the 5th has to sleep in the floor therw is obviously no space for 5. So very disappointed. The beds were well done and clean but for some reason the dust is everywhere. My mom is asthmatic person so this was no a good experience for any of us. The mini fridge is a joke. In 4 days it could not cold one soda I dont see the point in having a cooler that does not cold.
