An alright" Honeymoon!"

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The food on the Lido deck was gross many days, we ended the trip with both of us having travelers diarrhea and going straight to the doctor from the airport. The staff was not very friendly on my last cruise everyone spoke and was so helpful, many times people walked past with their heads down. The stateroom was often warm and many times hot. The drinks were expensive.

Pros: The Elation dinning room offered good food and good service.

Cons: The over all staff was no that friendly, there were constant loooong announcments many of the same repeated activites and BINGO three times a day, the activities cost extra money more often than I expected. We did not know the would add gratuity in the middle of our trip, we are tippers but that wou

Very few people were friendly, Viktoria, Claudia, (bar staff) Jay (stateroom), and Mary(elation), and Mushir (Magician) were amazing!
We were often board, there was karaoke, music trivia, and BINGO the entire trip.
