Review summary

This ship is a 5.5-star ship, and I believe it got its rating from the outstanding service, great food, and wonderful entertainment. I loved the outdoor pool, but it was hard to get in and out of. Just ladders and no steps with railings. And the indoor pool was too cold with the air conditioning on. The overnight in St. Maarten was nice.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

The rooms had less drawer and shelf space than other ships. The largest storage area was high above the bed so I had to stand on the bed to get to my folded clothes. And this was the only ship I had ever been on (19 cruises) that did not have a shower hose. But the rounded shower stall with the sliding glass doors was a nice design and it was easy to keep the floor dry.

Ship tip

A balcony room on the Aft of the ship is a wonderful experience even though it means walking down a very long hallway past 35 rooms before getting there. Worth the walk.
