Review summary

It was a good cruise. Not the best, not the worst


1 out of 5
It was horrible. I rushed to arrive at the port at my scheduled time and we stood OUTSIDE, in the heat and sun in a line that was wrapped around several buildings for quite some time. As if that wasn’t aggravating enough, security split me and my kids up from my father since he had a separate cabin. I asked an officer if we could stand in line with him so we could take the family “embarkation” photo and he refused to let us stand together so we missed our photo which is very upsetting. Not to mention my father is a senior and was very nervous about being split up and not knowing where to go on his own

Food and Dining

The main dining room was nice. I was very disappointed at how small the buffet was and the lack of kid friendly food

I was expecting the option to see a show each night.....shows were decent but not as good as some other cruise lines. Piano Bar and Havana were great!

Service and Staff

My room steward, Sudihendri, was amazing! He was very attentive and did a great job. Keep up the good work :)

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Smallest closet space I’ve experienced on a cruise so far but otherwise the cabin was ok. Shower was nice and hot and the water pressure was good. We had connecting cabins and wanted to leave the door open for convenience but the way it is designed you can’t see the tv if the door is left open so that was a bit frustrating
