Review SummaryI was traveling with my granddaughter and the trip was enjoyable because of that. This was my fourth cruise and definitely not my favorite one. The food was certainly not up to the standards I've enjoyed on other cruises. We had no hot water for showers for the first two days. Also I enjoy the productions in the evening and was disappointed when there were only two. There were smokers on either side of our balcony so it made sitting out and enjoying the benefit of it almost impossible. The other problem was that getting from one end of the ship to the other was challenging because not every floor had through access...we needed to take an elevator to the floor above or below to get to where we were going. I can't say enough about the staff though...extremely great service and very friendly and helpful.
