Review summary

If you want an around the world trip, this is it. Many nationalities on board most do not speak English or very little so expect to challenge yourself to communicate. Don't expect super food, kind of average. Expect to find a lack of ice cream almost at completely and don't expect coffee/tea/water available all the time, a variety on daily menus at buffet, polite behavior. Enjoy the fact that you are on a cosmopolitan world cruise. Cheapest world travel I have done even after all the undisclosed up charges found while at sea. Waved some of them in time! 😉

Embarkation

Easy, but @ 11 pm it caused travel delays. The food offered when we got on was terrible! The initial language barrier was a problem.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Sam**** their special restaurant had a prime rib from biker rallies so thin and chewy I didn't finish and I had to pay an up charge for it! Not impressed. Special Pasta? Like all the rest. Sweets? Little variety.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Daily schedule the same, little variation of things to do. same schedule for dance, craft, eat, etc. Boring. Pool and hot tubs sometimes open sometimes closed like the entire ship in every department!! Never saw a ship close so much so often. And always too crowded because everyone goes to what is open. Little to do other than the animation people (employees)games and activities. I will say all the shows were good.

Entertainment

5 out of 5

Children's Programs

No children

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
A couple of the day bartenders were rude, slow and worried about cleaning before serving. There were two truly good bartenders, 1st bartender Maria in Miribalis Bar and her second. My room steward cut way back on cleaning day 4, just did garbage and straighten. Was just me, and easy to verify the work done.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Ship in good shape, clean, layout creates a lot of walking. Saw many people rubbing their legs, me included.

Cabin / Stateroom

Great when entered, wish wasn't so dusty.

Ship tip

Be prepared to travel with several foreign countries at once. Very few Americans on board, what English is spoken is often too covered by accents to be able to understand well which is a difficulty. The world does come together on this boat, so be ready to fight for your line in buffet etc and to learn about different nationalities, customs, languages, style, food, could go on and on, but if approved op ached as a world travel it's great! If you compare to Carnival ****** not possible! Carnival, Princess, Holland ****** here I come. World travel was great but now I want to really go crazy on s ship!
