Review summary

Cruise was good however the ship layout and spa experience put a damper on the overall experience. Crew was great!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Food and entertainment was very good however the ship layout (elevators, main plaza etc.) was poor (IMHO).

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Paid for the extra spa accommodations but they sold it to everyone else so it was always packed. Good people on the cruise, just not used to having a ton of people in the steam room etc.

Sauna / Steam Room

4 out of 5

Good rooms, just always crowded.

Cloud 9 Spa

2 out of 5

Poor design, crowded. Won't do Cloud 9/spa on vista ships. Sorry but yuk. ;-(

Ship Quality

Cleanliness, NOT a problem but the ship design.... not a fan. I'll bypass any Vista class ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

Ship tip

What is crazy is that each elevator has its own button so everyone presses all the buttons and you stop on all the floors.
