No easy flow

Room Type: Balcony

Being one of the newer ships I was a bit surprised by how it was so choppy meaning that it didn't flow well inside. It was always a chore to seek out one of the few restrooms they offered and then once you did find it, they were extremely small and doors hit toilets, couldn't fit between the sinks and stalls if someone was standing there ( I am not a large person )

Hot tubs? Hot...No, there were many on board but they were all cold?

Food, I will give them an A+, it was all pretty good though I would like to see a better set up in the buffet areas, everything was set up for line assembly which moved slow and they were extremely long, been on other ships that have several circular stations that seemed to be less hectic.



Cabin / Stateroom
Everything was nice, clean and comfortable
Stateroom attendant was super nice and very attentive
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Not sure what was going on in Cozumel but getting off we waited on the stairs for nearly 30 minutes plus, just wasn't moving
Ship Quality
As I stated before, the lay out is so choppy and seemed not to flow well at all...worst of all you were forced to walk through the smokey casino on level 5 no matter what unless you chose another floor
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Didn't use many, always so busy
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Dining room was great, morning and dinner
Stayed away from the long and busy lines of the buffet


Make sure to bring along a highlighter for your daily to dos they have so many things at one time that you have to really balance it out and walk from one end to another consistently, ship did not have a very good flow to it
