Review Summary

The ship is beautiful, for being built in 1991 it really has been kept up well. I don't want to seem picky but it could have been cleaner. By evening the bathrooms in the common areas really smelled bad. And, I noticed that the people who served the food on the buffet lines were not real observant. Adult and Children alike often used there hands where they should use tongs.

Food and Dining

The food in both the dining room and buffet was very good.

Most entertainment and activities are geared towards elders or the children. One thing we really enjoyed was water volleyball and after 30 minutes we were told we had to quit so the children could have the pool back. THEY HAD 2 OTHERS POOLS TO PLAY IN.

Children's Programs

Going on the fact that the children were running wild, I am guessing the programs need work.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The only way they could have been better is if they would have at least tried to get control of the ship from the children.
