Review summary

Enjoyed the cruise, staff on the ship were great. Kids loved the sports area and the water park. Many places to sit and relax on the boat whether you want peace and quiet or music/entertainment. The thrill theater was fun and something different to do. Best lunch options are Guys Burgers and Cantina for tacos/burritos.

Food and Dining

Buffet-food was Ok but very limited. Dining room nightly menu was just alright. Food was Ok but I felt I have had better options on previous cruises. Guys Burgers and Blue Cantina were delicious.

Cabin / Stateroom

Size was what we expected. Our room steward kept it very clean and provided us extra towels daily. Remember you can always ask for a robe and extra blankets for use onboard.

Ship tip

Try the gelato during lunch and go to a comedy show.
