Review Summary

We were extremely impressed with how the staff was. Super friendly and make a few friends in a short time. The dining food was really good and plentiful. You were allowed to order anything and everything you wanted to, including multiple entries if desired. The buffet food was good and selection was plentiful. The entertainment was a little below par as far as quality, but entertaining nevertheless.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Dining food was very good, buffet food was a step below as can be expected., Burgers and Pizza were great. If you take this cruise, you must book a night at David's Steakhouse, you won't be disappointed, Well worth the extra $30 per person!

Entertainment was a little lacking, but there were many different things to do so it's not like you were sitting around doing nothing.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
There is not a rating high enough to give for the way we were treated.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Decor of ship was a little questionable. There were alot of kids on the ship and alot of paintings of naked women. Nothing that was "tasteless" as it is art, but still there were too many of these paintings around for the younger crowds to see.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
.Room was always clean and stocked. Looked forward to coming back from dinner to see which "towel animal" was left on the bed for us!
