Review summary

Ship a little outdated but always kept clean. I never felt too crowded and service was excellent. Food could be improved but I have cruised with NCL and Royal and felt the same way. Food variety was good. Great ports of call and no tender ports so that is a plus for me.

Little dated but the lay out kept lines down. I never felt crowded and never a long wait at bars.

Spa Balcony. Loved it. Quiet room and loved no overhang on top of balcony so you could get some sun during the day. Easy access to everything and elevators were close.
