Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Your time dining-awesome! Only 1 dinner had slow service the steakhouse was very well worth the $


5 out of 5
Just wish they had more pool games but understand that's tough due to size also found out about basketball late\, prizes from carnival should be credits not plastic trophies

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Loved all the casino dealers and bar tenders\, lobby bar can get overwhelmed and slow otherwise super nice staff not all equally knowledgable but no issues

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean great room keeping everything was top notch
