Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We were initially placed at a table for 2 which is not what we prefer. however after speaking to the concierge he placed us at a larger table in the middle of the dining room which was perfect for the entertainment. we always have a great experience in the dining rooms

Cabin / Stateroom

We did 2 back to back cruises and my wife talked me into getting interior cabins for the first time, I've always had balconies or Ocean view previously and i must say i was pleasantly surprised clean and comfortable with plenty of closet space.

Enjoy and don't forget to go to the Piano bar

long lines to get through immigration, only 2 people checking docs so it was painfully slow
