Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We ate in the main dining room every night for dinner. The wait staff was always great. The speciality steakhouse was amazing the night we ate there.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We played putt putt and enjoyed the dive in movie.

Cloud 9 Spa

3 out of 5

Mother / daughter massage was great, but the pushing of products after the service was not. They also over charged me and had to jump thru hoops to get it fixed.


5 out of 5
Violin group was awesome, comedy club was great, the playlist performers country show was really cheesy but the Flick show was great.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
My daughter only attended a couple times due to the staff not controlling the profanity and valguer language.

Club O2

Staff did not control the profanity and valguer language. My daughter only attended a couple things there and one night there was a fight leading to a few kids being kicked out. Her opinion of the person in charge was “he hates his job and doesn’t want to be there so none of us want to be there either”.

Always felt like I was lost

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
We were in cabin 2280, cove balcony and loved it. It was so close to the water, we had coffee and tea out there most mornings. The cabin itself was kinda small for 3 people but we managed. The AC was not great, very warm overnight so we asked for a fan which helped cool things down.
