Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Suite

We enjoyed the time together in the ship's friendly atmosphere.  Service was excellent, the food was good an plentiful and the facilities  on board provided some exciting activities, such as the ice skating rink for our 8-year-old grandson.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. Our cabin steward, Sandi was attentive and always smiling.

However, there was no lotion, shampoo, or chocolates, all items we've used and appreciated on other cruises.

Children's Programs
Our grandson enjoyed the pools, skating, and the rock wall. He did not participate in other children's programs
The ice show was excellent.
Service and Staff
Excellent service from the wait staff.
Food and Dining
Quality of food was not up to the standards we have experienced on other cruises.


Be aware that the distance to elevators can be very long if you book cabins at either end of the ship.
