Review summary

Despite no wifi and the over expensive pictures (which we complained about) the cruise was great! The excursions filled up our day so we didn't partake in the entertainment as much. We are definitely cruising again and will certainly do more excursions next time.

Food and Dining

Limited vegetarian choices, great variety for meat eaters however. Drinks were strong and on point.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Gym, pools and spa were great. Pictures came out nice but WAY TOO EXPENSIVE considering they're discarded if not bought.

Cabin / Stateroom

Small but neat and cozy. Not fond of bunk beds so a suite may work best next time.

Ship tip

Do not get the ship wifi. Ipaid for 7 days and got about a half day worth of service in total. Use the free wifi at the ports. Still waiting on my refund.
