Happy hour at the casino bar

I was on the ship for the 11/14 and 11/18 cruises. I must admit it was a WHOLE different group of people on the 4 day cruise vs the 5 day cruise.

Everyone complains of a smell on the ship. I only smelled a slight odor in the Jacksonville port near the atrium bar. After that, I did not smell anything of what previous cruisers complained of.

The staff was amazing on this ship. I spent most of my time in the alchemy bar and atrium bar. Zoran, Richard and Nelson are fun to harass. However watch out for Rosita's drinks... they sneak up on you.

Cabin Review


I heard SO many gripes before during and after my cruise. This room was fantastic. It was quiet. Great water pressure. No smells in the room or in the hallway. Arnel the room steward was quick to clean my room even though he felt I was a challenge since I napped so much lol.

Centrally located. Close to food, close to bar, not too close to music. Easy walk to the pier.
