Smaller ship than usual but still loads of fun!

Had wanted to cruise out of New Orleans forever so once this particular cruise became available I reserved my cabin at best price immediately. The trip on the Mississippi River is quite rough, in fact the first 24 ...

Enjoyable cruise

We took a 7 day cruise out of New Orleans. We took this cruise for several reasons. The first reason is because it left from New Orleans. Since we live just outside of New Orleans, it is very convenient to just ...

A fun, relaxing and inexpensive week at sea

I’m a price/deal buyer for cruising. The stars aligned the first week of January – a low season cruise week. There were good choices- HAL out of Tampa had great window cabin pricing and air fares were good. ...

Wonderful Service but Not a Lot to Do

We traveled the week before Christmas with our two kids 10 & 13. We had a wonderful time because that is what we made it! Though there were some cons, we figure life is what you make it. Pros: Service. ...
