I went on this cruise as an office retreat. Let's just say if this was the first cruise I'd ever gone on I'd never cruise again! Disembarking was not good we were supposed to board at 12:30 we didn't get on the boat until after 1:30. The muster drill was mind-blowingly ridiculous they had us standing out there for 45 minutes and showed us absolutely nothing at all! Our first night at dinner was horrible the ship was so rocky none of us could enjoy the dinner due to the rocking which made a lot of us sick. Most of the food was absolutely disgusting none of the desserts from the "sweet shop" were sweet the food in the buffet was cold, old with no seasoning and the lines were way too long! There was a magician show we planned to go see when we got to the room where the show was to be held there was no magician about 2 minutes later the phone rang so one of the passengers answered they let us know that the magician would not be showing up! The comedy club was lame not funny at all, the pools were dirty. There were a couple of minor good things like the pizza, the chopsticks place and the club was fun but it got tooo smokey and ratchet late into the night. Our room was on the 6th deck, two nights in a row the way to our room was blocked off by a barricade thing so we had to go to the other side of the ship to walk back around to our room that was very inconvenient. I was very happy when I got off that boat! I guess you get what you pay for

Was this a joke?
