Review summary

Overall a great experience, staff were friendly and everyone enjoyed themselves. Only negative, missing items from my daughter's room and getting from the ship was terrible.

We chose early departure. You are kicked out of your rooms hours before you can get off the ship. You are stuck in the halls while they call each hall. They never called our hall for early departure and they started calling floors for late departure. What is the point of choosing a departure if the cruise line does not let you off early?
