Review summary

Fun Cruise! Ship is showing wear and tear. On board staff was amazing. Dining staff was good our main waiter was not the greatest though. Food was just okay probably the worst Food we've ever had on a cruise though. Even with all of that still a great Cruise overall.

Water and temp was great. However they only had lounge chairs which were not the greatest no other seats to sit in.

Thermal Suite

Love the fact that they had multiple rooms with different levels of steam. However rooms were kind of run-down and lots of things not working in them.

They showed a wide range of movies which was great. The only negative I would have to say would be very hard to get popcorn.
