I was undecided about my trip so I booked my ticket the day before at a great price! From check in to docking it was a breeze! The food and ride was good! The staff was AMAZING!! And the DJ on Deck 2 kept the party going from start to finish!! I will definitely be returning!! It was such a good vibe!!

It was a wonderful experience; the team staff was so friendly and helpful as well as considerate. The DJ was very mindful of his audience, he played music for all types of nationalities that were participating on the cruise. I loved the buffet. My husband and I couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate our anniversary/birthday, we haven't danced together in years. Mr. Clarence & Wurneice Cuington

The boat ride was amazing! My sisters and I enjoyed the interaction with the staff members. They were very entertaining, friendly, and at our service. The food was very well laid out and we enjoyed the choices… provided. The presentation was on point which left an everlasting taste on our pallets. D.J. Robert knows how to entertain and did an amazing job with encouraging the crowd’s participation. The boat ride was overall an excellent experience.
