Review summary

We went to relax and we did just that. This is the second time on this ship on this cruise. I would recommend it.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Really smooth and easy from Fort Lauderdale, like the idea of picking your room keys from outside of the room so so simple

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Drinks at premium price, same for every cruise line. Food in main dining room was great, l never experienced a below par meal. Ocean view food quality was again very good

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff as usual worked their socks off, state attendant, dining staff, most of the bar staff, the toilets were always clean and tidy, 99% of the staff was friendly and polite.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
It now has a pretty blue hull, most ships l have encountered have a walking deck around 4 or 5, this one only has a small one on the top open deck. Generally l like the design with its quirky real grass around the sun lounge bar, very smooth sailing. Our room needed a bit of TLC edging on the couch was missing, some rooms had new carpets although ours was fine, bed was very comfortable not dipping in the middle, balcony furniture looks new.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Always cleaned well, very very helpful chap, a bit of trim missing from the furniture, bed very comfortable although the pillows are hard. Plenty of room in the cardboard for hanging clothes. Being close to the bow l thought we might notice the ships movement, not to be very smooth
