The ship was beautiful and elegant

Sail Date: July 16, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship was big and clean. The staff was polite but were not wery helpful. Several times we asked staff questions and they did not know the answer. Ship security was poor. They let kids get out of control. REMEMBER, the teenagers don't pay for the cruise, the adults do. I saw elderly couples afraid at times.
The ship was easy to get around and had something for everyone.

Pros: The ship was new and first class. The entertainment was great.

Cons: Too many kids, teenagers. lack of security as we witnessed teen fights twice. They were alowed to roam the ship and were rude. They had no curfew and they were up at all hours of the night. Anyone under 18 should not be allowed in the adult area after 11 PM.

Children's Programs
Keep the kids away from adults trying to relax.
Ship Quality
The staff satyed up on cleaning.They need more staff to clean tables in the Lido deck. There were a lot of dirty tables that needed cleaned.
