Food and Dining

One of my favorite parts of the day was dinner time. Our waiters Freddie and Shaldon were such awesome people and they we so enjoyable to be around. And the coffee lady churri was amazing. She would remember our names and orders every time.

Onboard Activities

I really enjoyed the water slide and the bingo games and also MarQ when he would do the trivia in the lobby.

I really loved the band Free at Midnight and I loved the singer Valeriee Aimee. They were both amazing and the tried to meet and become friends with everyone there. I loved them. I did not like the playlist production preformers. They could not sing and they pretty much ruined most of the songs they sang. If you’re going to have a group of people sing then pick people who can actually sing. They were okay dancers but I had to walk off of their performance it was so bad.

These people should all get raises. They were the most respectful and most kind. And they all seemed really happy the entire week.

It was so very nice. I slept on the couch bed and it was just as comfy as a regular bed. And I loved the different towel animals that would be on my bed everyday.
