Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Expected more for the money spent. Fine dining was good but the rest of the food was very average. Soft drink plan was a waste of money as was the wifi plan.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
2 small pools for 3800 people is just not enough. The programming was ok at best.


3 out of 5
Comedy shows are good along with a few other ones.

Children's Programs

4 out of 5
Probably the best part.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room staff along with fine dining were great even though in the dining room, we felt a bit rushed by the wait staff.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Our room which was one of the largest on the ship felt like a cage. The balcony was a great experience.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Very small, bed was average from motel 6. Shower was even smaller than I could imagine.
