First time cruiser so I don’t have many experiences to compare with it was overall a good time I bought the drink package did not get tipsy one bit… I get off the ship in tampa and go buy a premade, prepackaged small bottle of a margarita and got tipsy right away, something isn’t right there….. makes you wonder what they were mixing with on the ship… i can also say the food is “meh” not great but it kept our bellies full, the ship is on the smaller side from what others said and there wasn’t much to entertain one for 3-4 days it was a lot of repeats, we saw a man pass out in the hot tub and the staff just kept doing their thing did not help one bit the guest had to step up and assist the man 15- 20 minutes later the medical team showed up because of a guest stepping up to go get someone, my husband and I have been to hundreds of casinos all around the world and this one every single person around us was losing non-stop it’s usually dealer. Customer, dealer, customer etc. But every single table all night was losing everything they had some would say this cruise line is the Walmart of all cruise ships and I would have to agree… oh let’s not forget to mention the shower in our room was incredibly hot we tried everything imaginable to get it to a decent temp. Couldn’t felt like hot boiled water anyway we twisted the handles

Cabin Review

The cabin was good, the shower was a painful experience… it felt like boiled water on your skin no matter what you did with the handles
