Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Very nice ship. Many issues resolved quickly but some problems regarded dinner seating were initially problematic but were resolved after the first night. Wait staff were very accommodating and ensured that our meals arrived in a timely fashion

Onboard Activities

Lots of activities available and we were kept busy if you wanted to be busy. I and my daughter completed the obstacle course and skycourt activities were fun.

Cruise Director Matt was fun and entertaining but the shows/performers were a bit disappointing. I had better on my last cruise. But the Quest game was loads of fun.

Service and Staff

For a big ship it was hard to maintain but they did a good job. Serenity deck was a joy. No kids.....YES!!!

Cabin / Stateroom

Next time I would purchase larger accommodations. But it was nice and the location on the lido deck was very great.

Ship tip

Make use of room service more after hours. I will always pick rooms on the Lido deck or higher. Take advantage of te Serenity deck, and always make sure to get to te sows early to get te good seats.
