Went for a night out with bro-inlaws. Had a great time, dealers were friendly and nice. Recommend getting your players card early and putting it in a spot at a table game before gambling starts. If you like being on a boat at night and gambling would recommend. Someone who does not like gambling prob not recommend, good for a... More

The slots are very tight, especially the older 25 cent ones. Most of the others have at least 60 cent minimums. The BigM VIPs plop in front of their favorite machines for the entire trip.

People were great. The food was OK. The ship was older. A lot and I mean a lot of people got sea sick and nobody recovered till we docked. Slots we're very tight and expensive. ATM's were down. People were not happy. A lot of people were out of money within the first hour. So they just sat upstairs on... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent cruise with us. We have had some rough seas the past week due to Tropical storms in the area, also causing the satellite connection on our ships to be weak or non-existent for Credit Card transactions. Storms for now have cleared and everything is back in proper working condition. We... More

Buffet on the second floor was generous and delicious. Music and bingo on the third floor and outside deck and chairs. Non smoking cruise allows smoking on the third floor... More

Went on the non smoking boat and there were still people smoking up a storm on the outside deck which is the only place to get air and go outside to enjoy the views so I couldn't do that due to asthma. I expected the Buffett to be free with admission since it was not cheap but nope it wasn't... More

I had booked the non-smoking ship and because of the Hermine storm, they cancelled the non-smoking cruise last Saturday, Sept. 3rd. I received a call to change reservation to the smoking ship which it was the only one sailing that night.
