Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We had anytime dining and chose to utilize the Michaelangelo dining room as it was MUCH easier to get to than the Botticelli dining room. Food was fantastic as well as the service. We ate breakfast in the Horizon Court buffet and it was great every morning! We ate lunch in port of we were in port at lunch time - if not we just chose from the many options we had on board and were never disappointed.

Onboard Activities

Great variety


4 out of 5
Entertainment was across the spectrum from trivia tournaments to song/dance shows. My only complaint is that the ship was so noisy - there is a central area called the piazza and it was always so noisy there really wasn't a place anyone could gather with others and just talk because it seemed like the ship was trying to shove all this entertainment into every book and cranny.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our steward was beyond the best!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
You could tell the ship had a few miles on it - some of the lights in the dining room didn't work, elevators didn't all work all the time, etc. But it was clean!
