Out of all of our cruises this was my least favorite for food and room. This is going to sound like a review and you think I'm a negative person but I really have had great experiences on cruising we just didn't ...

Pretty good time

This was a last minute choice, because I had business in NOLA the following week, and I’m glad we did. Faster to the Fun is worth the extra cost, if you can get a slot! Embarkation was organized and painless, ...

Not The Best Cruise but not the Worst

We got a good price for a ocean view room but really booked this to see New Orleans. Harvest Caye was the biggest let down as everything except the pool and the beach costs extra and your drink package is no good ...

Huge ship but not enough public space.

Yes, this is a huge ship with lots of entertainment options, but because another 4000+ passengers want to do the same things, you'll encounter long lines everywhere or sold out tickets, restaurant reservations, etc. ...
