Beautiful facilities and immaculately clean. Slow elevators at times, but this is not unusual for cruises. Housekeeping staff was prompt and courteous. Could have used a few more deck chairs for peak times, but it tended to work out with some effort.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Buffet was better than the formal dining experience. Some limitation of choices in the dining room.


5 out of 5
Fantastic quality of shows and activities. The entertainment staff had a wonderful chemistry and clearly loved their jobs. This showed and affected the guests' enjoyment.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Very helpful and amenable to requests (except for one Excursions clerk who was a bit obnoxious).

Ship Quality

5 out of 5

Cabin / Stateroom

Clean and comfortable.

Pros: There was always something to do

Cons: Gratuities were not included as they are on other cruise lines\, and the suggested amounts seemed exorbitant
