Food was good. Small portions.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Activities were same as other Fun Ships, but lacked excitement mainly because the activities staff were not enthusiastic or engaging.

Shows had great choreography, but singing was just ok.

Spotlight Lounge

2 out of 5

Comedy performers were not good. First comedian bombed horribly and he actually thought he was funny. He blamed the audience for not laughing.
