Review summary

The ship was very clean and friendly. There needs to be more activities and more places to listen to music with more and better seating. The ports of call were all very interesting and passing by the statue of liberty is very much appreciated. Thanks for a great 9 days!!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The staff in the main dinning room was amazing. Went above and beyond expectations. The buffet food was great especially the omelets at breakfast. It would be nice if there was a 24 hour restaurant that served a few more choices than pizza.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We did the volley ball , ping pong and bean bag toss tournaments. Also the I Fly experience. The bumper cars were fun but need to be available more.

We were on the ship 2 years ago and the shows were the same, kind of boring. There also needed to be more music in larger venues.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff in the main dinning room was amazing for dinner. They went above and beyond expectations. Our room stewards did an excellent job of keeping the room clean. All the personnel was very friendly. The only problem that we noticed was that the bar staff in the shows were not exactly friendly if you ordered a pop with the pop package.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
I did not like the three main preforming areas. The main theater has to many poles to look around and the seats do not slope so that all can see. The Music theater has limited seating. 2-70 area the seating is very uncomfortable.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was clean and had very good storage. Grace our room steward did a great job.
