Review Summary

Boarding from the airport was costly as they did not offer a shuttle when my plane arrived (12;30) Boarding began at 1;00. Food very good, room staff excellent as were the servers. Ice show was great, as was the marriage game show, oithers were average. Karioke in a smaller lounge was entertaining and great. They should take the top acts and let them put on a show in the big theater at the end of the cruise. The staff needs to have inservice on disembarking the ship as the printed info was either wrong or misleading. When I questioned some Items, I was told wrong information.

Ship Tip

Hard to know which way you are going despite maps. Some elevators do not go to the top floors. Need to list times for different games in the game room. (bridge, mah jong, etc)
