Checking in on the ship was very easy and efficient. We didn’t have to line up for forever, it seems as if the staff had everything in order and we were settled in our cabin before we knew it. The ship does not have the glitz and glamour of other cruise ships but it does offer a comfortable and relaxed setting where you can sit back and enjoy a nice holiday.

The staff on the ship are always friendly and courteous, if there is anything that you need all you need to do is ask and it will be delivered to you or to your room. The cabins and rooms were spacious and had all of the amenities that you would expect to find on a cruise ship of this size. Overall, the daily entertainment on the ship was good. There were some instances when the entertainment was repeated only after a few days, we would have liked to see a larger variety in regards to live entertainment. There are several acts that are geared towards children but did not really appeal to us. The comedy shows were always entertaining and we enjoyed those.

The food on the ship was often hit or miss. The food in the Palms wasn’t always the best but the servers were always pleasant and eager to please. Unfortunately the some of the sandwiches were stale and the pastas were either under or overcooked. With that said however, breakfast service was always excellent. The breakfast meals are made to order and always prepared just the way we wanted them. Room services meals were not the best, as some of the food was too spicy or too bland. There were times that the food had to be sent back. I would travel on this ship again but only if I could get it for a great deal.

I would reccomend this cruise to others.

I think this cruise is suitable for Couples.
