Review summary

The ship rocked all seven days while cruising!!! I have never been on a ship that rocks that much. Some nights we would be sick just trying to lay down for bed. People bumping into others because of it.

Easy to board

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Buffets were the same no real taste or variety. Main dining was good but hit or miss. We bought the drink package but it was accessible as we thought it would be. We had to go to the bar for drinks. What if I don't want my kid standing in a line at the bar for a drink.

Onboard Activities

Adult jacuzzis close to early. All activities stopped at 11pm.

Ship Quality

My stateroom was near the crew room and let's just say you can hear them going and coming, up and down stairs, rolling cart and all. All day and night.

Cabin / Stateroom

Bed was not comfortable. The twin beds kept coming apart. My husband has a bad back and he could not sleep at all. We received some not so clean towels also.

Ship tip

Don't expect the food to be awesome. If you're gambling, pay close attention because the dealer will get you.
