Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was great at first but as the weeks progressed, I felt that the food at the Lido got a little less in quality.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
My younger brother did not like the Children's programs on the ship. Throwing snowballs disguised as toilet paper was a little ridiculous.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I love the staff members, especially the ice cream lady as well as the lady working on making waffles, crepes, and pasta during breakfast and lunch times!

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I love the cabin, but there was only one power outlet. It would be much better if it had even just 2.

Ship tip

If you are a tech-heavy person, bring a power strip! There's only one outlet in each cabin, so you will definitely use those a lot!
