Review summary

I am still really upset we chose this cruise. We chose this ship because we wanted to do the sky ride, and they had it closed down. next time I think we will book with someone else so hopefully we get to do what is marketed to us.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The Buffet food is not good. The restaurant is great all other food is pretty good. Not a fan of the pig and anchor.

Onboard Activities

I chose this ship because I thought it would have been really cool to do the sky ride. Well they had the ride shut down the whole cruise. I do not see how they can market the ride to get you on their ship then have it closed down. the rest of the activities were alright just not enough of them without the ride.

Sky Ride

Why use this as marketing tool if we can not do the ride? We decided on the ship over Royal Caribbean because of this ride. Do not get your hopes up to ride this ride.

It was clean and good size, we never really used the spa so not worth the extra money.

Hard to find out where to exit. We would go to one floor be told we were supposed to be on another floor and it kept going in a circle until we finally happened to be in the right spot.
