The food was excellent. The service was also great.

Onboard Activities

My major complaint is that for one of the 4 days we were on board, the water slide was being cleaned. This slide was one the key reasons we chose this ship and my son could not use it for 1/4 of the time it we were there. Beyond that everything else was fine but the closing of the slide left a bad impression on me and my family.
