The Chef's Art Steakhouse

What a wonderful experience. We celebrated our anniversary here and were given a complimentary desert and champagne. Everything tasted amazing. It was like having an iron chef type of meal.

The Crimson Restaurant

4 out of 5

The first night was a little frustrating. We had anytime dining and our waiter forgot to enter our order so we waited an hour before we got to eat. The next night was perfect! Our waiters Satveer and Leo we amazing, funny and kind! We never had to ask for anything. It’s like they were reading our minds!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We enjoyed the pools, hot tubs and water slides! Although the water slides can be a bit rough where the sections are joined together. My daughter and husband got a little scratched up on them. We also enjoyed Bingo with Money Man Milan! He’s hilarious with the cornet “dad” jokes.

As always, Camp Ocean was a hit! Can’t thank those girls enough for providing a fun and safe place for my daughter to play and meet other children.

Always clean but if you have your beds pushed together a mattress topper would be nice so you don’t feel the crack.

Ship tip

Get a porter on debarkation day.
