We went on this cruise with a large group of friends and family. This cruise is definitely a great value, and is just the right amount of time to be at sea.

The food was absolutely fantastic. Both the dining rooms for breakfast and dinner and the buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner were all wonderful. There was a great variety of foods, all cooked very well. we couldn't have been happier with the food available.

My wife and I just had a simple interior state room. Nothing to jump up and down about. We felt a little small but for an interior state room, it got the job done. There was a free room safe to use which was very nice to have, good sized bathroom and shower, bed was very comfortable. Overall very nice for the price paid.

The was definitely a large variety of activities available to do on board. Every night there a full list of everything to do the following day, including casino activities, comedy shows, and many many other things. There were lots of things for famillies, and just couple or friends to do.

Catalina Islands was very nice. We did the glass bottom boat, not a bad excursion but not something I would do again. However, it was pretty reasonably priced at only $19.00 per person. I heard that the tour of the city was a very nice excursion to do and that the snorkling was ok but little over priced. Overall the stop was very nice, great little Island to see if you have never been before.

Overall it was a great vacation. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a more inexpensive cruise for their first cruise maybe. I only paid for alcohol and gambling which was great, all of our food was paid for with our ticket. But, if you are looking for something a little more elegant or something a little longer, I don't think i would recommend this cruise.
