Checkout for my review. Brand new ship that had sewer smells. Kept the ship really cold to avoid passengers smelling stench. Much more cons than pros. Our 16th cruise, so we are veterans. Back to Royal Caribbean.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was good; very little food available like on other ships after 10 pm. Pizza, ice cream and one night @ 11 pm - hamburgers, hotdogs, etc. Most times, we were treated like leppers because we were only two; they catered to families and large parties. Most days, we were at a "two-person" table which I called "the timeout table!"

Shows were good, but some productions had no theme, just dancing and singing.

Children's Programs

How great could it be if kids were running all over the ship.

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Casino small and very few quarter slots. Personnel except for cage very unapproachable. I tried to get two female workers' attention standing in the casino flirting with two young guys. Couldn't get their help with the machines. Machines work off of your sailing card; no paper receipts any more. I am sure they are making a profit off of people not clearing and cashing some wins or leftover monies.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Safe in a very inconvenient location.

Pros: The Food, The Comedy Club; It left from Port Canaveral.

Cons: Changed confirmed Dining Times; no place for cigar smokers; no control of kids; lost luggage @ debarkation!

Recommends Carnival Dream? No.
