It's pretty simple - it's a $5 cruise and you get for what you pay for. The food was canned and overcooked and the two gambling floors are filled with cigarette smoke. The boat went out in inclement weather and rocked the entire time, causing many passegers and my friend to be sick in the bathrooms. It would have been more appreciated if they cancelled the cruise knowing how rough the waters are. As a nonsmoker, we were confined to the third floor for the majority of the cruise. I would say avoid but its a good time if you love gambling, smoking and canned food.
