Pretty good trip

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Wanted a quick getaway with my husband, and this was an inexpensive option for us. New to cruising.  Easy check in and boarding, room was bigger than I thought.  Always saw people cleaning and as a result, the ship was immaculate.  Food was good...not exceptional, but wasn't anything I didn't like.  I did get sick one day, but am not sure from what.  Disappointed at how many things cost extra....some activities, some food bars, nicer coffee (lattes etc), etc.  The pool area felt very crowded on the "at sea" days. Even the adult serenity area felt louder than I thought.  Thought the pool would be bigger....was like a big hot tub rather than a pool. 15 people filled it up.  Food options were good during the day, but later afternoon many closed which created long lines at the few that were open.  The entertainment at night was fun and the acoustic performers around the ship were phenomenal.  Overall was a good trip, the staff were super nice and the ship was well maintained.
