Due to the age of the ship and the reviews I had read we were a little hesitant to proceed with this booking, however, what we experienced exceeded our expectations with service, food, and cabin assignment.

We had booked an inside cabin and found out two days before our cruise that we had been upgraded to an outside.

CABIN We had no trouble with our air conditioning or our toilets. The cabin was a little dated but we were pleased.

FOOD It was better than we have experienced lately with other cruise lines. My husbands only comment was that at times portions were small but you could always ask for more.

SERVICE All ship personel were very friendly and helpful.

CASINO The slots were tight but eventually gave us some play (which is all we ask) It is a small casino and we were not hounded to use it.

ENTERTAINMENT we were disappointed in the singers/dancers but we thoroughly enjoyed the ventriloquist and the comedian

ACTIVITIES They were varied and enough to keep you busy if you so desired.

PORTS We have been on quite a few cruises so we did not book any excursions, just got off the ship and did a bit of shopping.

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom
Cabin E 737
The cabin had plenty of storage space. We had a tub, which if you are older could be a slight problem getting in and out of. Only negative comment would be that the handle area on the draws were on the bottom so being older that was slightly difficult. This cabin was around the corner from an elevator so that was convenient.
