The ship was beautiful, you were well informed of events on the ship. I was looking for the singles events I never found it, but other than that it was a nice cruise. I found eating in open seating was well organized never stood in a long line to eat. Ample enough seat for dining, I really enjoyed the option of eating in formal dining or eating in casual dining.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was great\, tried meals that I would have never eaten. Service in formal dining was over the top.


5 out of 5
Didn't figure out the entertainment until the end of the cruise. Went to the comdey show that was funny. Went to the clubs on the ship that was a little weak until the last day the club was jumping.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
I didn't go with young children\, but I am considering taking my 2yr old grandson on the next cruise.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Ship staff very friendly\, I opted out of the ship gratuity and gave my day porter a tip to himself.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was very clean the rooms were larger than expected. I had four people in my room and we were very comfortable.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
My room was great next time I'll get a window view I couldn't tell what time it was with a inside cabin. I had to have the TV on to figure out what time it was. Rooms should include clocks on the wall.

Pros: The variety of food\, entertainment\, the day porters very nice.

Cons: the ship had a bad smell one night got better\, accounting issues. I had to check it on a regular basis\, the choices of free beveages just lemonade\, tea and water for the lunch and dinner services. breakfast had better choices of juices.
