Review summary

We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise..the staff was exceptional about all of our needs and the port trips all ran smoothely. The food was very good in all of the venues. The only problem we encountered was overcrowding of the shows in the main theater.

Food and Dining

The food was delicious and also allowed us to make healthy choices.

The shows were great (what we could get into)..they did not have a second show of the Beatles Experience and the room was beyond SRO, the final show was sooooo crowded we were not able to see it at all and we were first seating!
