Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Wide variety, good quality and friendly wait staff.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Lot of opportunities to spend additonal monies. Art auctions, bingo, spa appts, fitness classes and shopping. More activities which are not fee based and not the trivia would be appreciated. This was a long cruise, in weather which did not lend itself to poolside activities, so indoor activities are crucial.
