the food was awesome. we were so happy with the buffet that we never even ate in the dining room....we will try it next time. the ship was a litlle old and worn... the staff was so wonderful. our stateroom was cleaned twice a day which was a dream. only complaint about the stateroom was the bathroom... was pink and green old tile all over with dirty grout.... smelled a little funny and i would not go inside without flipflops on! other than that it was great. our housekeeper was the nicest lady ever. always greeted us in the hall and took very good care of us.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
we ate at the buffet every single day.....every meal. we are not easy people to impress so it had to be good! we never made it to our restaurant reservation every evening because we were busy doing other things and just ended up at the buffet. it was delicious. the variety was great and the food was just good.

there were activities all over. we missed some things because we were busy with others. that was kind of a bummer. the comedy shows were the best. i havent laughed that hard in ages. totally worth watching!!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
loved ALL the staff. every person was so friendly. the greatest part of the trip was all the great employees.

Ship Quality

the decor was a little dated but it was clean. the elevators were a little slow but it allowed us to use the stairs and burn off some vacation calories.

Cabin / Stateroom

we were in a suite on the V deck. the size of the room was good. we are planning on taking our daughter next time so not sure what a bigger room would be liike. our suite was not big enough for three. the bathroom needs upgrade. it was dated and old looking and the grout was stained which gave it a dirty appearance. the shower pressure was great though.

the whole water front. all the shops are a must see. have a seat on one of the benches and stare out over the ocean and just relax!!
Don't Miss: the dessert shop!

i would never go back again.... it was dirty and everyone is trying to make a buck off of you. the blowhole was not worth the trip. at the flea market you get attacked by every shop owner trying to get something from you.
Don't Miss: nothing!!!

Pros: the staff and food

Cons: the stateroom and bathroom
