If you're under 60 years old or with a family, don't bother. Overpriced drinks, no worthy entertainment, gross cold tasteless food. I have never seen so many people in the age range of 70-80 years old with walkers in one place. That's fine, but if this is the age group they cater for, this needs to be obvious to those booking!!! Kids don't stand at chance at having an enjoyable time swimming as the older people stand still in groups in the water for hours. And don't bother trying to find a deck chair as people dump there stuff and disappear for the day leaving them unusable. Not to mention the cigarette smoke filtering down a whole side where deck chairs are situated near the pool. Poor kids. Was horrible having uninterested staff serve at the buffets. After lining up to wash hands and listening to people whinge that this was required. Why would anyone want to pay $30 a session for a quick round of bingo? Or $10-15 for a single drink? Or play beanbag toss every day? Boring. Boring. Boring. So much paper advertising each morning trying to make people purchase overpriced jewellery and lame clothing. Casino was a joke, no one doing anything interesting besides playing pokies. The whole place was dead by 9-10pm. This was my first cruise experience and I will not be in a hurry to go on another one. Never again through this company.

Boring, expensive floating nursing home
