Review SummaryThe food was excellent, lots to choose from to control your weight, as well as to gain for those who love to indulge. There was delicious low calories food. The service was superb; the crew was very professional, respectful and friendly. EXCELLENT! The beds and pillows were first class. Did not miss our wonderful ComfortPedic adjustable beds. We also loved our balcony as we were able to enjoy the sounds of the waves without all the fuss and noise on the veranda. I particularly loved the gym. It was empowering to exercise overlooking the ocean. The equipment is first class, clean and in top condition. My husband enjoyed the massages in the spa. The children activities were also excellent.
Having said all that, the ship was pretty smelly to the point that during the safety exercise everyone had to cover their faces. I had to put perfume on my hands and still smelled the odor. It seems that there is a problem with the sewage. I sometimes felt the smell in our bathroom. The ship was also somewhat dirty. The balcony glass needs to be cleaned.
