Review Summary

I would not book on this particular ship again. It was difficult to get from one side of the ship to the other without having to go to a particular floor, cross over then go to where you wanted to go. Also much to small and old ship.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining room experience was very good. Service was good and the food was good also. the buffet area was much too crowded; quality of the food was good, not exceptional

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Did not participate as this trip was strictly for the purpose of resting after a very long month of conferences and work.

only two shows and we went to one. very often the singers were off key; but the set was pretty and the costumes very colorful

Children's Programs

We did not travel with children

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship was a bit too small in the common areas i.e Lido deck; would have liked some more sitting areas in covered areas. common areas were clean enough. However, our balcony was very dirty and in much need of cleaning and repainting, very disappointing as we purposely took a ball cony suite to enjoy the outdoors and it was not pleasant sitting with so much dirty surfaces around us. Wall between balconies was loose and I had to stuff it with a towel to keep it from rattling and keeping us up all night. And we did not have anyone offering the handsanitizer when walking into the dining room which I believe is a mistake

Ship Tip

Make use of the dining rooms and stay clear of the buffet areas, much too crowded
