Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Good food. Guys Burgers and Blue Iguana never fail us. It''s missing some of the speciality dining like the bigger ships have. On the first sea day, the coffee area was sort of gross (half eaten apples, wrappers everywhere). The food was good. The servers were great!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
This ship''s gym in HUGE! One of the largest. The pool was nice. Again, because it''s a fantasy class ship, it doesnt have all the bells and whistles of the bigger ships. The sports deck was nice and had a very nice. Always love the jogging track! If you want to see our full ship tour, you can find it at

Staff was amazing. Our room steward was hilarious!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ok. They get a 3 because it does still smell like sewer in some spots. And they could have done a better job at picking up trash around ship.
