This was our first cruise, and although I read several negative reviews, we booked it because it's a short one. We were very pleasantly surprised by the embarkation process. Although it took some time because of the number of people, it was very well organized and went very smooth. Our cabin was very small but it didn't matter because we spent very little time in it. The staff was exceptional! They were all from Eastern Europe (Serbia, Croatia, Ukraine, Russia, Latvia, Bulgaria and Romania) and Indonesia & Philippines. They were very helpful, very nice and professional. I would like to especially mention Angelka, Alenka, Jovan and Nikola! The buffet at lunch and midnight wasn't very good, but the dinner was excellent. There is plenty of entertainment on the ship, such as the casino, bingo, horse racing, bars, a nightclub, spa and an evening show. They offer great island tours also. The only disappointment was that we returned to Florida at 8 a.m. on Sunday. It would have been nice to spend a few more hours on the boat! I highly recommend this cruise, although not for luxury, and the boat is rather small, it's perfect for a 2-night cruise.
