Review Summary

Wish we would have been told about the fun shops not being open. My wife and i were both very dissappointed at the lack of shopping options. To not have invetory of alcohol being served on board was frustrating. We cancelled our post cruise party where we share pictures and recreate our favorite drinks from our cruise.

The shows were great, bingo was fun, the love and marriage show was hilarious!!!! VERY disappointed over fun shops not being open until last day with very limited inventory, unable to purchase cruise shirts for the family. We had this amazing shot and asked for the ingredients only to find out they didn't have that kind of alcohol in inventory until they got back in port. Was very disappointed....
