Review summary

This is a great ship for families!! We had alot of fun on our 14-day cruise.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
We used the Medallion app and were able to check-in early. We were on the boats in minutes.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Overall the food was very good. The only challenges was for non-meat eaters. The vegetarian options were redundant. The buffet was very easy to access and was never overly crowded. They have a great system, for ordering eggs (they provide a pager) so you are never waiting in line. The dining room was very nice and we seldom wait in line. I do wish they had an Asian (similar to Norwegian) that was no additional charge.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
This was the first cruise I have been on where there were real activities versus activities where they are trying to sell you something. The activities staff was wonderful and alot of fun.

Entertainment

Compared to other cruise lines I have been on, the main shows were a huge disappointment.

Children's Programs

Service and Staff

The staff and the service were great - no complaints. The guest services was especially helpful.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
I really liked this ship!! My only challenge is that they need to add more signage - it is difficult at times to know if you are heading to the front or the back of the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
We had regular cabin with an obstructed view. The cabin layout was great. There was a large closet with lots of room to unpack!

Ship tip

There are alot of activities on board - take the time to review the list of activities.
