We knew this itinerary was a quite and relaxing trip and that was what we were looking for. What we were not looking for was a boring experience on the ship. We found the daily activities sparse at best. The nighttime shows  were boring and amateurish. Unless the activity was in a bar area the bar service was sparse and slow. We have been on about 8-9 cruises on different lines and this was the first line where you could really feel a class distinction. This line is all about repeat customers. There were lounges for different classes only, special seating in shows and in the cafeteria. Overall I have had a better experience on other lines.


Cabin / Stateroom
Only complaint is the lack of electrical plugs. Had to run things across the floor.

My time dining is a little bit of a misnomer. If you do not have a reservation you will have a wait.
