Review summary

Was a good cruise, I think I was expecting more from all the reviews and utube videos I watched before we went. Will do Alaska next year. Also we definitely consider not going on spring break, to many unsupervised kids. I talked to 4 young boys that were eating at buffet alone(10-12 yrs old) they were throwing sugar packets all over the floor and pickles on the windows and laughing as they stuck and slid down the window. As a mother I just had to remind them someone was going to have to clean up that mess🙄 they hung there heads , cleaned up there mess and left. I’m sure they had some four letter words fr me as they walked away,,,0 well,,,,no respect.

Food and Dining

We only ate at main dining room twice,once dinner, very good food. Seated to close to next table thou. Once breakfast, very good food, excellent service. Again felt like we were eating with the table next to us. So many awesome food choices. Italian restaurant was amazingly good, steak restaurant was good. Guys burgers were sooooo yummy, pizza was good, Blue Igwana had really good fish tacos, burritos were so fresh. The blue margaritas were pretty amazing too. We loved the buffet, was always good, kept clean. Soft serve 🍦 was nice.

Ship Quality

I do think the crew works very hard to maintain the cleanliness of the ship. Our room was also cleaned very good and quickly.
