Review summary

This was my first cruise and I had an awesome time!!! It was such a great time I'm now hooked and ready to book my next cruise.

So quick and everyone was very friendly. From getting off the shuttle to actually stepping onto the ship took maybe 30 minutes tops.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
There were a few things that I didn't care for but that doesn't mean someone else won't like them. Everyone's pallet is different. I very much enjoyed the experiences and the food in the main dining room! The buffet was good also. However, I have to admit Guy's Burgers and Blue Iguana burritos were my favorite!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I didn't do a whole lot of activities but what I did do was fun. Played bingo and just hung out and relaxed.

Loved Motor City, America Rocks and the Lip Sync Battle. The comedy shows were amazing. I laughed so much my stomach hurt.
