Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining food was excellent to so-so. Flat iron steak was always a go to. JiJis/Mongolian wok at lunch was a disappointment. RedFrog pub bartenders never acknowledged our presence, drank elsewhere. Buffet was buffet.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Sky bike was fun. Long lines. Don’t forget your closed toed shoes or you don’t ride. Pools never crowded, always found a chair.
