Awesome ship, not so awesome crew

Sail Date: July 27, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This ship is amazing with more than enough to see and do. However, we were hard pressed to find someone to break out a smile. The crew look too tired to smile, sadly. It really took away from our experience. There are so many awesome people working their but it appears they are working too hard. They just didn't seem fresh!

The comedians were hilarious. We really enjoyed the Tenors show but didn't appreciate the patriotic message (save it for when you in America) - just didn't think it was appropriate for an international audience.

I'd would to cruise on this boat again but only with a well rested crew. I know they have it in them!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
First couple meals were not great but they got much better.
Service and Staff
They appeared to need rest. Hate to say it but they looked tired and were not very friendly , with exception of a handful.
Didn't appreciate the patriotic message in the Tenor show. Should be played to an American only audienc

Great beach!


Gratuity is automatically added to the bill which I disagree with since the act of gratuity (tipping) is to show appreciation for exceptional service, which is not what you always get. It should be a incentive not a given.
