Review summary

The cruise was very enjoyable for young adults and children as well. Only factors i found disappointing was the lack of variety in food options,obvious older appearance of ship, and the night clubs all being in an area where only smokers could enjoy. other than those three things overall it was very enjoyable cruise. The spa although it is on the higher pricey side they do also provide health seminars that were fun to attend and if you are onboard for your birthday or special anniversary you can use you voucher to apply towards spa services. I had my pedicure done by Zadra and she was outstanding.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The main dining area buffet food options were subpar not much variety and inconsistent hours for serving. I would recommend dining in specialty restaurants only. Special Thank You to Daniel in the break fast area who was super attentive and help.

I really enjoyed the comedy club as well as the game shows I unfortunately was unable to enjoy much of the night clubs on ship due to most of them being on deck 9 the designated smoking area was unbearable.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is an older on but it was clean around the clock the staff did an excellent job

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Very true to size and can comfortably fit 4 only dissatisfied with the shower set up the water would continuously wet entire bathroom floor because the divider was simply a curtain rather than a shower door

Ship tip

Come for the entertainment, avoid the 9th floor if you are a non smoker and eat only in the specialty restaurants
