My wife surprised me with this cruise for my birthday and it was excellent.  The personal service in every aspect was outstanding.  Especially Hector (I think) who was our waiter in the dinning room.  He and his assistant were top notch.  We have been on many cruises in the past but the service we received was the best we have received prior.   

Food and Dining

The food was presented very well and Hector was an asset to your staff. He was excellent.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Limited bingo, I would have liked to have an adult area with a couple of hot tubs that were not full of splashing children to relax in. I also enjoy sitting in a steam or sauna but these were not available. Not much life in the bars in the evenings.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I was a little worried about the size of the ship. But I was worried for nothing. It was a great ship and the size was actually an asset.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was great other than the shower was a little small. Expected on a ship. The Cabin attendant was excellent and did an exceptional job.
