Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Overall it was a decent cruise ship. The pool was small and full of kids at all times, so it made it undesirable to even lay out near it as we were on a \"ladies trip\" with no kids! It would be nice if there was an area adults could swim or lay out. The ship was very clean which was a plus. Room service was timely. The food was \"okay\" but not what we expected. The food lines were long and slow leaving you waiting on the main deck in the sun for long periods at lunch hour. All desserts,ice cream, and TEA were unsweetened which was strange. The staff was clueless when it came to answering simple questions. I asked for help finding a locstion 3-4 diff times from staff members and they were unable to tell me! Balcony rooms were very roomy as opposed to the interior ones. Probably a good price for the quality but not suitable for an \"adult luxury getaway\" like we were told before booking!

Pros: ship was very clean

Cons: small pool\,uneducated staff\,food wasnt great
