We had low expectations for this cruise. We purchased it last minute and got a good price. The two destinations were Phuket and Krabi, Thailand. Pros: Great swimming pool, room was better than we expected for our budget rate, food was a little better than average, service was really good, ship entertainment staff were really nice, great deck for running laps (378 meters per lap) Cons: They advertise that they go to Phuket and Krabi, but they drop you off far away from anywhere you want to be. We had to spend over half of our money on taxi's just to get to a decent beach in Phuket and Krabi. We kind of wondered whether the cruise line is getting a kickback from the Thailand government to boost their taxi industry. Others have mentioned that this is a gambling cruise. This is probably true, but it also features alot of adult entertainment like strip shows, etc. We really would prefer to not even have this option aboard. Thailand is bad enough. The shore excursions were pricey.

Had a great time on this average cruise, but...

Cabin Review

Cabin 8028
Our cabin had "L" beds with an obstructed view. The bathroom was larger than we had on Carnival. TV options were few but at least they didn't offer adult entertainment.
