Very enjoyable cruise. Food was OK, not exceptional, but plenty of choices. Coffee, Ice Tea and Lemonade always available. Best Pizza on a cruise ship! Great entertainment.

Great dinner if your looking for something off the wall. From the menu to the dessert, it's an experience. Try all of the food whether you think your going to like it or not. After all, you've gone down the rabbit hole to Wonderland!

Best Pizza and they have other little side dishes that ate good also. There's also a drink vending machine that makes it convenient for those with a soda package.

Solarium Bistro

4 out of 5

Best Food! Fresh and Hot. The only negative is that they allow kids in the Solarium Restaurant. Should be an adults only restaurant!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Spent a lot of time in the Solarium, beautiful area away from kids. Solarium restaurant should be kid free also!

Casino Royale

4 out of 5

Nice size casino but the smokers used this as their smoking section even if they weren't playing. They just sat at the machines smoking and not playing.

All shows and comedians were excellent.

beautiful place for adults. cascading pools and 2 large hot tubs. Loved the large round loungers, perfect for two people.

The Royal Theater

4 out of 5

Shows were great. The only negative is, there is no room to stretch out your legs, when sitting a long time.

Music Hall

no kids with us

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Our room steward, Theresa, did a fine job getting us anything we needed. Our first two nights in Silk dining room were not so great. Our waitstaff didn't seem to be on top of things. We requested a different section on our third night. We were seated in Francesco's section with waiters, Ygnacio and Komang. We had excellent service from them and knew what we wanted before we even asked. We ate one dinner in the Solarium. We loved everything except the fact that children were allowed in. We thought that was a no kid zone also. Very disappointed our kid free sanctuary was not actually kid free.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Love the design, We never felt crowded and loved the pizza and the location. Most ships have the late night food on the top decks. This was so handy in the middle of the ship. One of the busiest places also!! The girls doing the pizza at night were phenomenal!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was kept clean by Theresa. Nice size and we liked the 2 separate closets. Plenty of space for our clothes, especially drawer space. I didn't feel crowded.

Ship tip

Make sure you see the shows!!

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas
