Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was OK, nothing special. Brunch in the dining room was good.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Too much smoke in the casino. I was not able to stay long. Beer was a little too expensive except in the buffet (self serve). Grandkids loved the water slides. Nothing much in the shops.


4 out of 5
The band playing at the Rock Show was very good. The singers were marginal.
