Review summary

Getting on was a long line, get there early. Once on it was awesome, the Spa was so relaxing and hardly anybody used it, no hot tub in the spa only wet and dry saunas with heated relaxing lounge chairs... playing soft Christmas music.. fun! The food was always awesome...too much anytime you want it. The entertainment was great and the comedians were hilarious, even the kid shows.

Spa was awesome, it's worth the $150 for the whole week or $250 for the couple.

Comedians were great! The shows were good but the cruise director Mikey on the bar in the atrium often was the best!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Waiters were good after asking for my drinks quicker in the evening they came quicker, Abner was the best! Room steward needed a little help too many things not really clean in the room and I had to go behind him to make sure it stayed clean.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Tough to get to the dining buffet without walking through the pool area and it was wet sometimes.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Not as clean as previous cruises and attendant only came by once a day but very good part of the ship to be in.

Ship tip

Make sure you get Mikey as the cruise director
