Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The evening sitdown meals were excellent. The buffets were just a bit crowded at lunchtime.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
I liked the movies playing on the regular television in the room. Bingo was fun. I lost in the casino, but had fun. The newsletter was a good source of information for defining all the days' activities.

Service and Staff

We were on deck 8. Perfectly located for all we needed. Three of use shared a balacony and were impressed with how easy it was to get around the ship.
