I chose this cruise because of the perks and the price. The perks were nice, but as for the food, it was definitely below my cruise standards. The specialty restaurants- The Cagney Steak House burnt my lamb chop, and the sides were sub par. The Moderno Brazilian Restaurant was excellent and should not be missed. The buffet was very limited and very poor selections. My dininig rooms selections were nothing special either. The taste of the food was nothing special. MSC, Holland America or Royal Caribbean would be MUCH better choices. Activities were lame. Evening entertainment for 5 nights was generally poor 3 out of the 5 nights, with a fair to poor comedian 2 of the 5 nights. The perk for the shore excursion came in handy but had they not discounted them, it would have been cheaper to book them yourself. If you are a first time cruiser, you will probably love the experience. If you are an experienced cruiser, forget this cruise line

More info:

The ship- Not huge so fairly easy to get around. It is clean and well taken care of.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

Plenty of room for your belongings in spite of tight cabin space.

Port Reviews

Great Stirrup Cay

Nothing much there.

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

They boarded at one terminal and debarked in a different one. Bussed us to get our cars. BAD IDEA!
