Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was just average, nothing special at all. I was not wowed by any food.


1 out of 5
If your kids don't go to the kids program, there is very little for them to do since the pools are crowded ,cold and the hot tubs cold. The shows are late for small kids to attend if you go to an early dining option. Activities overlap and then there are gaps of nothing planned. The basketballs were deflated on day one so there were no basketballs to use. Long waits/lines for mimi golf and ping pong.
