We went on this cruise to celebrate a sister's retirement and it was a perfect way to to so. The ship was a nice size and we were able to enjoy most all the bars and night spots. The staff could not have been nicer or worked harder to make ... Read more

This was a family reunion cruise and seeing the family was the highlight. The ship is definitely showing her age. Layers and layers of paint, some of it chipping off, carpets worn, wood door steps very worn and towels that were torn. ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was the first time cruising for our 3 children and the flights from Atlanta to Miami were very inexpensive. 3 days seemed to be enough for our kids to sample the cruise experience. We arrived 2 days earlier in ... Read more

For a first time cruise, I think this ship was a little small. I did feel quite ill the first day, but it did get better over the following 2 days. I might be wrong to assume that I would feel less movement on a bigger ship. Service ... Read more

The cruise was fantastic. Loved every minute of it. The food was great. We loved the main dinning room we had the 5:30 seating so we had time and did not miss any nightly entertainment or activities. Our waiter had our drinks ready ... Read more

Well it was good from day 1 until about day 3. Then our food service kept on getting slower and slower. This would mean we would start dinner around 5:30 and end at around 8- when other people would be starting to sit down. I have no Idea ... Read more
