The ship has indeed seen her better days and they are all in the past. The boarding staff in New Orleans were rude, uninformed, and totally messed up boarding directions. They treated the passengers like cattle and laughed when you followed their uninformed directions instead of fixing their mistakes.
The ship seemed dark, dank, and dirty. Not in the sense of trash everywhere, but things were very dingy. The room was adequate and the steward was fantastic, but in poor repair. Windjammer food was held at unsafe temperatures and up to 6 hours for some foods. I asked about this and was told that some of the items that were to remain hot were held for 6 hours and the cold items as well, even though they were heated and chilled improperly. Meaning that the cold items were not chilled at all and the hot items were held at double temps for 6 hours. I don't know about you, but eating a hamburger that sat out for 6 hours is disgusting.
The bar staff were generally very good and the drinks were as strong as you asked for them to be. The main theatre entertainment was pretty bad, save the magician. Overall if it is very and I mean very cheap this cruise will be ok.
Ship did not dock.
