Review summary

Had a great time with my friend. The ship was very nice and had lots to do. The IMAX was great. For me the ship was too big and too crowded. I didn't do many of the activities on the ship because it was so crowded. The ports we stopped at was great. My friend got scammed in Jamaica by someone that wanted to braid his beard. Cost him $20/ braid, and that scammer got a lot of braids on him.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Had some issues with the spa staff that pushed me into buying some items without saying the price (over $100 in goods.) Was able to get the items refunded but the staff didn't seem happy.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship is too big. Too many people and the new activities are not as fun for me. Lido deck was dirty all the time because it was overcrowded.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Had an interior on deck 1. It was next to the stairs and elevator. Didn't have any issues with noise. Was a nice room and very clean.

Ship tip

This ship is not for people with anxiety and is antisocial. Lots to do on this massive ship. The IMAX was awesome so check that out for sure. The IMAX does cost extra.
