Horizons Restaurant

We had a great serving staff whom we requested every night. They were Durgon and Maroune and they were awesome!

Lido Marketplace

5 out of 5

It was a very well coordinated food service station which was exceptionally clean at all times. The staff was well aware of the needs of all passengers and were there to keep us relaxed and happy.

Onboard Activities

Lots of choices for everyone

Cloud 9 Spa

1 out of 5

Quoted one price for a couples massage and charged more. Luckily we caught the mistake. There was a gentleman in front of us in line whose wife was going to be charged much more than the price quoted.

Vista Casino

1 out of 5

We were unfortunate enough to have our muster station in the Casino. no one should be forced to inhale other peole’s smoking choice. I could hardly breathe!!!

For such a large ship there should have been more shops.

Guest Services

Absolutely fantastic! Our beach bag was tipped over and my diamond earrings and necklace fell out. Security found them and we retrieved them from guest services. The young man went above and beyond to find them.
