Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dining room was good, buffet was so so, serving the same old stuff each day. On sea days they only had a brunch buffet in the dining room. Not nearly as good as being served!

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Pool was over crowded. No ballroom dancing available.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Service was fair mostly..except the first day we boarded. The luggage was left in the hall my the service area and we had to bring our own bags to our room. Never ever experienced anything like that before!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Very small ship

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Cabin was extremely small. Could not even stand up around the bed. And the foot of the bed touched the dresser. Smallest cabin that I’ve ever been in. Not happy at all with the cabin.

Ship tip

Don’t book it. Use a different cruise line

Interesting but tour started late so didn’t get back to ship until 3pm and tour didn’t include lunch. No chance to eat anything, very hungry.
