Review summary

This was our first cruise and my husband was a little nervous about it (He has seen Titanic too many times), we were not disappointed at all and had the best time! Most of the time you did not even feel like you were on water, so he relaxed and had a great time pretty quickly. We went to the Imax and the 4d theater as well as some of the shows and he probably spent too much time in the casino but we had a great time and can't wait for our next cruise!

Onboard Activities

Pools were always crowded, but clean. It would have been nice to spend more time in the pool but there were just too many people. Still, there were plenty of chairs and we had a great time.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was very friendly and we were impressed at home quickly they learn your name. Our steward was Bintang, and he did an awesome job with our room each day and even left us a gift card for our anniversary! On the last day we met Lucas (?) In the watch store, he was very friendly and chatting with us while we waited for some jewelry.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The floors in the restraunt on the lido deck were slippery, and I found myself slipping quite a bit. I actually fell at one point, but wasn't hurt (except for my pride)... Still I gave a 5 here because this a small thing overall. My only other suggestion would be bigger pools and maybe one that is no kids.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was a really cute room and we were impressed by the size. It kind of felt like an RV camper. With so much to do on the ship we didn't spend too much time there but we were prepared for less based on stories from others. We were happy to find outlets and shelving that we were told wouldn't be there. It was very clean and the bed was so comfortable! The tv even had our names on it when we turned it on!
