Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
MDR and pay restaurants were very good. Included fast food restaurants were good, but receipies couldbe improved. Guys fries were not crisp. Pizza was very good, especially #4. Did not try lunch at Wok or Pasta Bowl. Buffet was disappointing. Not many selections at any meal. Just avoided.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We did not use pools. Activities hosted by Emma were lots of fun. She is full of energy all day long.

The individual and small group performers were very good. The theater was disappointing. Limited visibility in several places. Main floor is not sloped. EMMA is the best.⁷

Children's Programs

No kids

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Mostly good. Stekhouse service could be more personal. Maybe not enough servers. Cuchina servers were very good. Manager and chef both came out to talk with us. We had MTD andservers were good. Not real busy at our time, about 6:45.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Very clean. Design is boring.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very clean. Smaller than most. Need more closets/shelves. Temperature was easy to regulate.
