Review Summary

I truly enjoyed the whole experience, thank God! - Many things to do, room service 24 hours, good free flowing food, nice dinner every evening. I participated and won a singing competition along with 5 others, we got a trophy and a nice bottle of Champagne! The staff was mostly wonderful! Cheery and nice all the day long, except one or two, everyone has a bad day.
