Review summary

We were first time cruisers and did not know what to expect. We were totally blown away with the ship and the crew which make this ship enjoyable to sail on. The cleanliness of the ship and focus on passenger experience was great.

Food and Dining

Main dining room meals were great. Wife was even impressed when feeding that many people. Same issue with buffets keeping food hot is a problem reason for a rating of four. The Brazilian Steak house disappointing. Chops for dinner excellent. The Italian restaurant also very good.
