NOT THAT IMPRESSED

Whilst I saw some of the most amazing ports in the world. I was not so impressed with the cruise and its staff. Even thought our party of four all had MY TIME DINING, this was treated with complication for the ...

Picture a vaudeville act

If your looking for sparkling, colorful and exciting atmosphere. This is not a ship for you. Picture it as a ship in retirement. The carpets are a fun l970s design. Its heyday was probably early 70s. There is not ...
