Pool was a little smaller than I expected, but I was there to lay out so it was fine. Piano bar was fun, karaoke was fun, shows were amazing! Very talented team!!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
A little frustrating at times getting off at an elevator and not having a way to walk around to get where you want to go on the same floor b/c there's no option except to go into the restaurant. (Having to go up one floor, then walk around and go back down)

Cabin / Stateroom

It was very nice, good size and very clean. Lighting was excellent

Only visited the beach and did some shopping here. All the people walking up to you trying to sell stuff was annoying.
