Review Summary

I would highly recommend this ship for families traveling with children and/or the elderly. It was quiet, very clean, and peaceful. However, a little too boring for me. Ports were excellent! Private island was awesome, other ports were clean and friendly.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was good... a lot of fresh food and the ability to eat healthy! Main dishes were good, not great and the food day to day was not consistant.

Entertainment for my 15 yr old daughter was great! Night and day! There was not a lot of options for adults though. Shows were not that appealing, movies were hit and miss if you could even stand to sit through them and bars were ok. This ship's crowd was majority elderly. They entertain that crowd as well as children very well.

Children's Programs

My daughter had a great time with kids her age and the activities planned by staff all day and night when we were on the boat. Eric was her group leader and he was awesome!!

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
food service was HORRIBLE. No one smiled and no matter what time of the day you ate the staff seemed like you were burdening them. I think it's a HUGE mistake to manditory tip staff, they don't have any reason to go above and beyond and in this ships case to not even smile. Our room service was excellent, had a great attendent but he was the only one on board that I can say that about!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
