Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We enjoyed very much. Loved that the rest. menu changed day to day. Rest service was the best ever. But it was very difficult to get a beverage at the buffet or any resturant on level 9 you had to leave your plate to get cold while you search out a bar, stand in line prove you paid for the package only to get one drink at a time, even if you had your roommates pass.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Pools, casino, watched the Saints game in the Red frog bar. Deck chairs, spa, waterslide, photo shoot. There were a lot of kids around the adult area pool and casino and the sports bar off the casino Limited seating which kids took up.

Timur was excellant. Room service was quick. Rashada, resturant hostess may have been my favorite person on the ship. Loved Ronaldo in the Lincoln room. Overall service was exellant.
