Sail Date: Jul 2022

My family wanted a quick getaway from the Tampa port. We had high hopes but were disappointed in so many ways. Firstly, this cruise line seems to attract a certain clientele that is loud, rude and I'm going to say it...uncivilized. I would equate it to the Walmart of the high seas! Aside from my obvious snobbishness our room and balcony were disgusting. The comforter had hair on it and the bathroom was not stocked. The food in the dining room had extremely small portions and lacked any real flavor. The lido deck was a bit better since they had the salad bar and of course, the soft serve :)

The entire ship needs a deep cleaning or better yet a complete overhaul. Carpeting and seats were filthy and smelled like stale sewer water.

The positive of the experience is that the crew were friendly.
