Review summary

This was an outstanding 20 days cruise with 20 days of sunshine. The ship is a beautiful new ship and everything is immaculately clean with great covid control features. You felt very safe. The main Capri dining room had excellent food and service as did the daily buffet. Being on the ship for Christmas & New Year was really special and our best New Years ever.The ships Christmas decorations sure added to the outstanding experience.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Since this is a new ship all was spotless clean with average storage space. The room was a littler smaller that some with no room for a small sofa or other furniture. It had a small refrigerator which kept thnigs nice and cold.

Ship tip

The ship was less than half full as part of their covid protocols. It carries 3600 passengers and a crew of 1346 and there were only about 1800 passengers the first part of the 20 day cruise and 1400 the second 10 days.The crew was only 1400 out of 1346 You never had to hunt for a seat at the buffet or anywhere on the ship. Empty lounge chairs everywhere on the decks at the buffet or in the restaurants. Great employees everywhere with covid protocols well established so you feel vey safe.
