Review summary

Ship is pretty- but kinda boring. Layout make NO sense- felt very closed in, hallways narrow, never enough seating for comedy shows & they are always popular! Food was not good at all- never hot, deli food was never fully done/melted, pizza line was a joke at night, broken Promenade was a busy- nice idea, but doesn’t work- added imax & took away much needed public spaces!!

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Layout is ridiculous- crammed way to many people into tiny spaces, hallways were very narrow, public spaces too small, broken up promenade & too many dead ends. Difficult to learn your way around the ship

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Clean, good steward. Paper thin walls, celings, & floors! ring a loud fan with you- it’s also warm in room
