Small. Not enough storage space. Window nice size. TV was terrible! Bad interactive programming. Each days MDR menu not available. Screen was very pixelated. Bathroom small. Toilet more like child’s version. Shower nice. Couldn’t hear daily announcements. Room always kept clean. Mattress decent.

Ship tip

Don’t expect ANY ship to be as good as the cruise line tells you it is. Just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean it’s going to be incredible.

Not enough time in this port. Don’t know why they tried to cram it in the schedule. We got released to go into the port at 6pm had to leave at 11:30 pm and get up 7am to disembark. Okay if you’re not in the older generation.
