Great cruise, average ship...

Sail Date: July 03, 2014

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The cruise was great but we were not impressed with the ship, Very cut up design made it very confusing to get certain places, had to take elevator to floor above or below deck you actually wanted to go to and the take steps to where you want to go.. Also hallway by our room was very hot (a/c not working?) and had a moldy, rotten smell..Interior room was clean and slept well with good a/c. Lido deck is VERY busy and does not seem that well set up to handle alot of people at one time...We actually ate at the deli (which was not very busy) most of the time and enjoyed the food. Buffet food was okay when you could get to it...Dining room experience was nice and enjoyed the meals, there were all very good. Shows were good but I would not cruise on this ship again...

Terrible design and in need of a deep cleaning in the room hallways...

Miami was very organized and had quick boarding and unboarding
Miami, Florida
Key West, Florida
Cozumel, Mexico
Excursion area okay, water beautiful. Otherwise it was very touristy and vendors at the duty free area that you have to walk through to get back to the ship were quite pushy.


Get to the Lido buffet early or you may not eat...Make sure you keep a ship map handy...
