Review SummaryThe room was great. The only problem was that we had one of those adjoining rooms...the kind with a door separating us from our neighbors and they were very loud. I did not like this conisdering my 5 year old should not have to have an audio tour of the birds and bees in action.
Food was good, lots of buffets with good food. Friendly employees, except in the spa.
In the exercise room, there was no ventilation. You can use a machine for as long as you want. If you are the person waiting, wait away, there is no sign up sheet. Machines that are broken will remain broken for the duration of your cruise.
Food and Dining
Lobster, Duck, Quail and a spa menu...lots of variety.
Saw some of the demonstrations and stuff. Nothing to write home about.
Like it's open from 9 AM - 11.45AM. You need to get there early to get your child out by 11.45 or you will be charged extra. So if the line is long, tough luck.
The topics were good overall, they had a lot of movies and arts and crafts. Good overall, just really unnecessary worry about making it back at specific times.
Service and Staff
By the end of the cruise, you noticed that some spots were worn, but it took awhile to find it.
Cabin / Stateroom
Any noise in the adjacent room could be heard, like shutting door, talking, tv.
Also found hairs in my bed on first day.
My son had a bloody nose and only some sheets were changed.
Ports of Call
Pros: Size of Room, Quantity/Quality of Food, Friendly Employees
Cons: Adjoining Room was Loud, Last Night Really Rocky
