A wonderful cruise!

Sail Date: April 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was clean, the room was roomy and clean (twice a day!), the food was very good, except the dining table in the buffet area need to be cleaned on the edge, the excursion was also good and informative. I would recommend this trip to friends and relatives. My mother commented on the way the ship was builit (very pretty design and colorful patterns) compared to other ships that were docked near our ship. My son had a great time mingled with kids his age in the Club C group. We all eat too much, the food was abundant !!! The food in the formal dining room was superb!!!. We did smell a little bit of cigaret and cigar smoke on Friday when we walked passed the casino area, but in other days of our stay, we did not smell any of that which is very good compared to other cruise that we have been in the past.

Pros: Maine Lobster at the Inpiration Dining Room, very deliciously prepared meals in the formal and buffet dining areas.

Cons: Prefer a bit less salt if possible. The buffet dining tables need to be cleaned not just on top but on the edge also.

The bed, comforter, pillows were so comfortable. We slept well like a baby. Plenty of towels to use in the bathroom. My son loves his bunkbed. The room and bathroom are clean.
