This is the second time we went on this ship. The first being back in 2007 and its beginning to show its age a little. Nevertheless the crew were fantastic, especially while we navigated through some rough waters.

The food overall needs work, its a little boring and in some cases it was tasteless, but expectations were lowered as we were out at sea.

I do have a problem with the mandatory tipping for children. We travelled with our twin 5 year old daughters and they paid the same price as we did and had to pay the same tips as we did and I feel this should be done at a reduced rate.

Overall, we had a great time and look forward to next year to do it all again.

Cabin / Stateroom
Showing its age. Needs more than one one power outlet (remember to take a power strip with you) and can do with a USB port. TV needs to be updated so that passengers can plug their own media devices into it.
