Review summary

For me and my wife, the best part of this cruise was our stateroom. The size of the room, the comfortable bed and a good size bathroom with two separate sinks made our trip very pleasant. Greatly appreciated the complementary upgrade.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was fine - It would have been great if pizza was also included in the lunch and dinner buffets. Guests had to pay extra to get a slice of pizza. Same was true of the drinks - water was available in the dining areas but to get water in the cabin, guests had to pay extra. Coffee and tea were available during breakfast time and afternoon tea time. Most guests like to have coffee or tea after dessert. To get coffee or tea at dinner time, guests had to pay extra.
