Review summary

This was a wonderful experience I would definitely do it again on a larger ship. This ship was huge but I would like a bigger better experience next time. The drinks were great. The staff wants you to have a happy experience I was very pleased with my stay and will be booking again. Thank you!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Buffet food was better than the free dining room. The specialty restaurants were delicious very expensive but I didn’t mind I just wanted good food.

Onboard Activities

I enjoyed the fitness center. The arcade was small but fun. Next time I book a cruise I will make sure there are more jacuzzi tubs because every time I turned around they were full.

Music was great. Night club was not targeted toward a diverse crowd. The da played micheal Jackson and old music I was hoping he would at least play top 40. There was only one night club. As far as everywhere else on the ship they played nice violins and piano music.

Service and Staff

Cabin / Stateroom

We had a suite with a king size bed. Very nice . Bathroom and shower too small for me. But it’s a ship so you can’t expect too much.

Ship tip

Make sure you get a room near the elevator on the 3rd floor

The port was okay, I went to the beach the entire time and the sand was the best part of the entire trip. Gorgeous beach.

They knocked on our door twice to get out the room but sent a flyer out the night before saying we had until 1030am, they were at our door knocking at 9am ! I was upset about that. Then at 930 we sat in the dining room with everyone else on the ship just to wait 2 hours until our number was called (#24) and it took us a long time to get through the immigration line.
