Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I loved that there were so many dining options. Food is served in smaller portions but if you’d like more you are more then welcome to get back in line. Drinks were great and strong.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
My boyfriend and I spent most of our time in the Casino or out in the sun but there were a lot of free onboard options which was great. There was always something going on.


I don’t recall any live shows.

Children's Programs

I do not have kids.

Staff was super friendly, personable and accommodating.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The design of the ship is beautiful but I felt our rooms could of been cleaner. Our linens appeared dirty/stained upon arrival.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The room is small as expected but cozy and still comfortable. Again, I believe it could of been cleaner.
