Review summary

Ahmed was a great waiter. He really cared. Daniela was a wonderful stateroom steward. Liliana Topic really helped us and met all our needs. Mike Pack was a terrific Cruise Director. Lots of energy. Tyler was a lot of fun, too. He was part of the Fun Squad. I hope he gets promoted to Cruise Director someday. All of these people deserve a rating of 10 out of 10.

I loved doing the trivia games. Tyler made it even more fun. Please promote him. He deserves it.

Meridian Restaurant

5 out of 5

The food was very good. Sometimes it could’ve been hotter. I liked trying things I normally wouldn’t be able to due to cost or availability. I also liked that if you wanted to try something or didn’t like something you could order more than one appetizer or entree. The staff were very helpful. Eka was very nice. Ahmed deserves a promotion.

We went to a few comedy shows which were very funny. We also enjoyed a show called Vintage Pop.

Limelight Lounge

Leo brought a lot of energy as host/emcee. He deserves a promotion if he wants one. He brought a lot of energy. The comedians were fantastic. Jeff Janas (spelling?) and CJ (can’t remember his last name) were very funny.

Children's Programs

We don’t have children.

We were very satisfied. The bed was so comfortable you didn’t want to leave.

Ship tip

Get familiar with where the bathrooms are. They can be hard to find. The staff will show you where they are, though.
