Review Summary

New ship, clean and with very good staff. Good amenities but the shows were not up to the level of other cruises. The smaller shows, comedians in particular were quite good but the larger shows in the main showtime theater were only OK. There are a lot of passengers on the ship therefore getting on & off the ship in ports requires a lot of patience. The food quality and optiions were good, but not up to the same level of quality on some other cruise lines. The child care facilities were excellent.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Good variety and options. Food was sometimes overdone and not hot when served in the main dining room - probably due to the large numbers of people being served. Preferred dining times were not available even after making several requests.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
My son (3 yo) actually requested to go to Camp Carnivalafter the first couple of days and seemed very happy and entertained. He liked the staff. The only negative was the ratio of staff to children in the 2 to 11 age group was insufficient for the first 2 or 3 days but improved a little after that.
