Review summary

We wanted to have a nice relaxing cruise - and we got it. We did bring some card games in case there wasn't anything to do that - and we used them. Other cruise lines, there were many more options in terms of activities. We weren't interested in the crazy amount of sale pitches for jewellery/ health "seminars"/ and basically every other shopping you can imagine. There were more "sale" actitivies than actual free activities etc. The trivia/ games scattered throughout the day seemed like an afterthought.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The service is fantastic. The staff is very attentive and couldn't ask for more. The problem is the food options. If you have a dietary restriction - be warned, you don't have many options at all! a couple of fritters as an entrée is not enough. The buffet staff are fantastic. All the food I tasted was excellent! Again, lack of options. Also, there is possible cross contamination. You shouldn't have fish next to vegetarian items - and people are constantly swapping spatulas.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Every day there are periods of "nothing to do". They must assume people are drinking or swimming. But if there weather doesn't allow swimming - and the pools are closed off. They didn't provide additional activities to do. Often the paper and the app activities don't match up.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Very good entertainment.

Children's Programs

They don't provide the schedule for the whole cruise. They provide a paper daily - but it means you're relying on the room steward to provide it - and they forget every other day.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
They all work hard and no complaints. Everyone is professional and friendly
