Hostess didn't seem to understand private dining, put us 6 inches from tables on either side and called it private.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Couldn't get enough of Punchline comedy club! Hilarious, professional comedians! Fitness Club was well stocked with great equipment and facilities! Had fun with miniGolf! They did a great job with Games like scattegories, worked hard at making it fun. Bring on more family entertainment, skip the dance shows.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room Steward was my wife's favorite person on the cruise, Reysiska was always ready with a smile and room was immaculate! Even had the towel animals and other special touches showing she cared about the experience, not just doing a job. You should make her a trainer, all of the staff could learn from her.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

Loved Bathroom, simple elegant, shower was great. Had flushing problem one night, fixed in minutes! TV should have a Movie library on-board, (very easy to do), and more channels than CNN for news.

Ship tip

ENJOY the cruise it is worth the money!
