Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
The food on the main dining room Inspiration was very bad, and the service was just okay. But the food on the Tiffany's buffet style restaurant was very, very good and the selection of different food and desserts was great.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Pool was only one and not big for the 2,400 guest.

Very good for what we observed, but we did not need it because no children with us.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
They just did the job but not much else, overall everyone done a good job.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The layout and design is just Okay. The common areas are well maintain and clean. But what I think is not good is the way no one enforced the rules of using SANITIZER trough the vessel especially with the CORONAVIRUS definitely 75% of the guest did not used Purell because it has bee one of the most enforced rules on other vessels and I have been in many.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was very comfortable and well distributed, very good size and the balcony also of excellent size.

Ship tip

Find a different vessel, this one is a bucket of rust on the outside and in very much need or refurbish. Windows on the lido deck pool side frames are corroded and the glass have holes near the frame.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida
