    It’s basically buy one get one free for inside state room.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, Kathy! I do find these details – “Must be sailing with at least one paying guest in the same stateroom”. I’ll be sure to add that above. 🤗

      • Rebe

        Hello Amber, just so that you know, you still haven’t clarified that it is not free but B1G1. Please update the post, it currently sounds deceiving and Hip2Save is not that kind of site. TIA.

        • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

          So sorry, Rebe, that was not our intention! 🤗 We’ve updated the post so that this information is in bold print. Hoping this will provide some clarity. 💖

    I have heard not so good reviews about this ship…how it is older and bad kids. I’m a RN and would like to go but need to see/read some positive reviews

    • SavingsMama

      I’m a CNA and I’m saving for a better ship! If I was an RN, no way would I go on this thing lol. Sorry but I’ve heard too many bad things about their customer service, food quality and overall non-smooth sailing.

      • rn404

        thanks for the info

    • ramboski

      Don’t do it! It’s only worth it if you are local. It’s not worth it trust me! It was the worst experience I ever had.

      • Amyr

        What do you mean “if you are a local”?

        • SavingsMama

          She means a local person who wouldn’t have to pay airfare to go on this ship. Only if you live close by because it’s so yucky and old. Hope that helps!

    • Crystal Coffen

      It’s not a bad cruise! I’ve been several times. Clean rooms and decent food

    • Jennifer Provence

      I went on it last October with my sister for her birthday. We did not have any problems with kids. Some adults were not behaving well but I don’t recall too many kids. For a short vacation it was worth it.

  3. Lisa G

    Horrible reviews. I wouldn’t even want to go on it, event if it’s free.

  4. AJ

    Been twice, in 2017 and 2022. I enjoyed. And it has now been upgraded so I would love to see the upgrades

    • rn404

      hi…where are you finding that is has been upgraded??

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So happy to hear you’ve had a great experience on both of your trips, AJ. 🤗❤️

  5. Flavia

    I don’t understand all the negativity. I just sailed on this cruise with my children and family and it was one of the best short vacations we’ve done. Highly recommend it.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for commenting on your positive experience with this cruise line, Flavia. 💗 Glad your family had an amazing vacation! 🥰

  6. lillian alvarez

    Its really dirty

  7. ramboski

    It was the worst experience I ever had! Not worth it trust me! There’s a reason y it’s free! It’s only worth it if ur local. Other than that it completely sucks!

  8. Tleeg74

    just checked their website. if you pay full price for a cruise, it’s like $90. I’m sorry but what type of cruise is only $90…something smells fishy about this cruise line.

    • treyja-vu

      It’s probably the ocean.

      • riss

    It’s kind of silly this can’t apply to the suites that hold 4 ppl. So basically if you have kids coming too you’d need to book 2, 2 person rooms to get the one persons ticket free. I do not see an option to upgrade to a 4 person suite.

    • Briane

      They don’t even ALLOW you to pay an upgrade when you call and ask that. We thought the same thing, plus a couple of us prefer a different room for seasickness prevention. The woman was so rude at this company, I immediately decided the bad reviews had to be true.

  10. bdubs

    This is a really short cruise (2 nights & only 1 full day). That’s why the price is so low for paying customers. I’m an educator & have this cruise booked already so I’ve been doing a lot of research. It’s an older ship that recently (spring 2023) was remodeled. It’s not luxury; it’s fun! It sails out of West Palm Beach which is not a typical cruise port. The majority of people who go on this cruise review it as a lot of fun & many take the trip multiple times.

    Why did we book this? My fare is free (still have to pay taxes, port charges, etc.) We like Jimmy Buffet. We had a flight snafu on SWA earlier this year so we had points to use on free airfare. We like to cruise & try new things.
