Fun, noisy on deck, but fun nonetheless! 5 days was a perfect length of cruise time for us!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
We were well fed and the staff was very attentive. Tables could have been cleared quicker. I did several myself, despite eating after the mad rush was over. Main dining room buffet food was enticing, but the desserts were largely disappointing. Best day was chocolate explosion. Not enough chocolate options at dinner meals, in my opinion. Best part, was Guy Fieri’s Hamburger Grill!!!! Delicious, and always ready to serve. Also would recommend the deli be a little more generous with the meats on sandwiches. My Reuben had scanty pastrami both times.

Onboard Activities

LOVED the shows, especially the dance and singing shows. Dustin, the cruise director, is a gem, and we had so much fun with the singalongs!
