Review Summary

This ship is just OK... very long lines for food, very slow service, and impossible to get a chair to sit in the sun. With so many people on board it was always congested. The shows were not good at all with the exception of a magician which was fabulous. Also, the food was very cheap, everything tasted like it had gelatin in it to "stretch" the food - no taste. One late night buffet only which was had very little "pazazz" - wouldn't pick this shp again.

paid a lot of money to have a special "treat" of a spa experience. This was very nice however was pressured into buying spa products or the staff member wouldn't let me leave (felt required to buy!) - got out of room only to return item that I didnt' want.
