Review summary

We loved it even though we had a few issues. Guest services was great and we loved the cruise director


4 out of 5
My first experience so I was very uncomfortable handing our suitcases over to a stranger with No identification. I was supposed to trust the guy cause he was wearing a blue shirt like all the other guys??? I think they should all wear badges. Weird way to start my trip. It was very stressful. I was traveling with my autistic son so this added to my stress

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
food yummy! Great choices! We were not happy with our waitress and cold food due to taking a long time to be served. but was accommodated and moved to a much friendlier waiter. We were happy to get a hot meal and a smile to go with it.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Enjoyed our cruise director Gary. He was so much fun. Liked the shows, mask making, connect four contest, spa, green eggs and ham breakfast, story telling with Dr. Seuss

on the last day it was terrible! Bad experience getting off the elevator on the third floor with a special needs guide. She lost us in the crowd that would not let us get by. Lots off pushing and shoving to keep up with guide. Words were exchanged between some passengers and myself
