Review summary

Overall it was a nice getaway however I don't know if I would recommend this particular cruise to anyone. The ship was nice, the stateroom was nice and roomy for an inside room. However they did not put any thought into the on board activities meaning there was hardly any and the few good ones were scheduled at the same time! Also their eating schedule did not cater to a person on vacation. When your on vacation you expect to sleep in and stay up late. On this ship you could not do such, breakfast ended too early and there was nothing open for a late night snack. No activities after 11:00 pm and no on-deck activities during the days at sea. Also they kind of harassed you with the spa treatments. Since nothing else is going on they have people walking around trying to get you to sign up for the overpriced spa. I have been on other cruise lines before and it was the total opposite of what I experienced on this ship! Also I didn't like the fact that you had to pay for sodas!

Cabin / Stateroom

This was the best inside cabin i ever had. I am a very claustrophobic person I did not feel so in any way in this stateroom! And the room steward Rio made it even better. He was such a nice and thoughtful person, he made the trip worthwhile!

Ship tip

Bring some dominos, cards, etc. something to do out on the deck!
