Review summary

This cruise was a gift to myself for my 50th Birthday. I had a good time on board the fun club did a great job. my dining room experience was not good we were given a 8pm time and were always the last table to be served every night oven getting done with dessert at or after 10pm. Often missing the on board shows unless we skipped dessert or ate some where else. I was told by my booking agent that my room would be made up for my birthday and nothing was done except for a discount for a photo and money off a spa. I was very disappointed.

Service and Staff

our wait staff for the most part was slow. our room stewards over looked a moldy bar of soap that sat in our bathroom next to our sink for three days until we said something.
