Review summary

This ship is small, quaint and intimate, however, the staff on the ship is exceptionally, pleasant, curteous and they go above and beyond to make sure your cruise experience is a memorable one. This was my first cruise on a Royal Caribbean ship and it will not be my last. The Royal Caribbean personel is an exceptional crew.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The décor of the ship was very nice as well as the layout, even though it as a small ship it is intimate and it was well maintained. My only complaint it had a caustic order on the 5th floor.
