Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Interior

I chose this cruise because it had decent reviews and a very good price, however, I would have pay more, knowing what I know now. The ship is small, that' okay, but rusted, badly painted,inside and out. I could hear the upper level while trying to sleep, jumping and people screaming in the halls. When I did try to take a nap, a Very loud noise outside my window, someone sanding! I opened the curtains and a creepy guy in goggles waved at me!!

There was no sail away party as promised and the Halloween party lasted 1 hour and was horrible. The stewarts were very nice and friendly, but the bartenders and waitresses were Rude! I would say thank you, they wouldn't even say your welcome! They knew they were already tipped.

The casino was small, yet took forever to get a drink, got up myself, because tired of waiting.

Cabin Review


Cabin was okay, but had ladders in room for 2 people that took up much needed space!!
