Review Summary

Food was good, service was wonderful. Our cabin was clean and a great respite from the rest of the crowd.  I don't drink alcohol at all but the coffee was good and the gelato was nice.  I know each cruise company designs each boat and cruise on an intended audience and obviously the audience is younger, louder, families, and those that want a less expensive trip.  It succeeds well.  The noise level is loud on all of the cruises, but my next trip will be on another ship that caters to an older, less partying crowd. We only saw 1 show but we loved everything except the volume of the speakers.  Kinda ruined the experience, actually.   But, in the end, we're happy!

Clean, and quiet. We were right next to the main pool deck and only heard bumps form the shuffleboard on the deck above us, occasionally.

Ship Tip

Take earbuds...you'll need them occasionally. Take a favorite soft drink for your cabin., Room service on the mornings of the destination days may be easier than hitting the buffet. If possible, come back earlier to the boat and enjoy the now less crowded areas.
