Review summary

It was very nice being in port on all the days but one. And I like they are all 8-5 ish. Which means you can take your time in each port and not rush around. We all had a blast and loved all the ports. Would do this same cruise again.

Water slides were fun. Pool and hot tubs were busy most of the time so didn't spend much time there. We played bingo which was fun.

The ship was very clean. The design worked. The ship is ready to be put on dry land and updated and upgraded.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was smaller than any other ocean view we have booked in the past. It was very tight with the two bed put down for the kids. With that being said it was very clean.
