Review summary

There was ups and downs. It started a bit rough with us being the first guest back on board the staff was exited but they had a bit of a ways to go to figure out how to run everything so it went smoothly. Once it all came together it was a nice cruise

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Very easy and the quickest I've ever seen

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
It was a total mess at first no one serving anything, sitting there for 45 minutes. I walked out and ate on the lido. It eventually improved and once it did it was a nice place to eat.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
A lot less then in the past concerning shows. I didn't swim but it was nice in seeing the pools not so over crowded. Also a few of the non smokers coming into the smoking area which is not even close to the rest of the active areas is really irritating and those Karen's really need to get over it trying to control others. Straight up stay out of smoking areas and go on with your own life.

Service and Staff

Everyone was nice and happy to have us guest back on board. My room attendant was really a great kid and smiled all the time. He genuinely liked interacting with people and it showed.

Ship Quality

Design well irritated with it because you had to go up and over to come back and down to get where you wanted

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was inside but it was a good little cabin. It did need a little maintenance on a few things but it was miner

Ship tip

Just relax. It's a decent ship. No there is not a whole lot like other ships but there is enough to have a pleasant cruise.

Extremely hot so make sure to bring a lot of water and keep hydrated. It was a really nice port and excursion. I went on the fortresses of old San Juan..
