Review summary

Fine for people with low expectations who just want to sit out on a sundeck and tan and not use a pool(sooo small) It was fine for our first cruise but if we ever cruise again it will be with a different line that puts out stabilizers to prevent all the sea sickness so that we actually can be indoors and experience the events and bars

Embarkation

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Food was less than desirable Main restaurant was ok but got seasick in there so we had to eat buffet Raw veg were frozen if there were any Lineups horrendous Food choice was boring for breakfast and dinner

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Pools are a joke so small Hot tubs would be nice if they were warm at night Mini golf was fun Splash park was fun Movie under stars was awesome Could only do ropes when we were docked it was so windy Should have a fitness area (workout) teens can access not just the outside “ facilities” which are pretty poor

Tides Pool

1 out of 5

Pools are tiny

Entertainment

WE couldn’t sit in the boat we kept getting so sea sick

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
Having been to all inclusive hotels and all they offer these kids programs were very lame Kids stuck inside either playing video games or doing their own thing

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room stewards were excellent Rooms clean Offered help when needed

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Carpet in main areas is so old and starting to smell. Staff worked so hard trying to keep it clean but it is an almost impossible task Ship design was poor the main stage Is at the front of the boat and it was sooooo rocky we couldn’t go in and see any shows Piece of the exhaust liner fell off while sailing. We loved being out the back but after that it was blocked off for a couple days so I am not sure how well maintained the boat actually is. The casino has no air filters so it smelled so bad of cigarettes we couldn’t go in there

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We were pleasantly surprised with the cabin With a teen and a 9yr old there was enough space for all our luggage, and room to move We used sea bands at night and never got seasick.

Ship tip

Expect to wait in lineups for everything. I spent 40 min in line trying to get the Mongolian and ended up giving up This is not the cruise line you get the big beautiful displays of food and exciting events First thing we bought on land was a veggie tray Keep expectations low and you will be fine

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
Absolute nightmare Lineups snaking down hallways No order People trying to bud in A claustrophobes absolute worst nightmare Even people who aren’t normally nervous in tight settings were feeling the effect of being stuck in lineups with thousands of people trying to get off the boat
