Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The Italian Pizza and Pasta's were Exceptional! The breakfast buffet lacked daily selection. After day three, I felt like I was eating the same foods over and over again. The sit down dinners took around two hours to complete. We did not partake in the sit down Breakfast and lunch.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The live shows surpassed my expectations and the kids (7 and 4) loved them.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
The kids program was far superior than other cruises I've been on. The "Squack" staff genuinely cared about the children and the curriculum was very engaging.
