Review summary

This cruise was a bit odd in that only 1295 guests were aboard (we were told) out of total capacity of 2900. Honestly, it was a pleasure to cruise with such few people and I had no complaints about having to wear a mask (most guests were really good about it). I will definitely cruise on this ship again!

The process was extremely easy & I felt very safe.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

We mostly ate at Blu Restaurant (outstanding service and great food) and had one meal at Eden... WOW, that was seriously incredible. I highly recommend it.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We spent most time in the spa (the Thermal Suite was GREAT) and just hanging around various areas of the pool.

The 2 shows we saw were both amazing and I felt very safe sitting up front; not near anyone else.

Service and Staff

The staff do such a great job of remembering the cruisers and making everything special.

I couldn't imagine a ship any cleaner.

Cabin / Stateroom

So glad we went with Aqua class. The room & bathroom were roomy & comfortable. The verandah was so much better than a regular balcony. My only issue is I wish they had more hooks to hang things on (robes, towels, wet bathing suits).

Ship tip

Do a dinner at Eden!
