Review summary

Nothing special. The promenade was the only place to be a night. The bars all had something, but high prices for the booze. Shows were mediocre. Food was good, especially a gluten free section. They were charging almost 10% for currency exchange, so if you didn't pay in USD, AUD and CDN money holders were getting ripped off. Cheaper to pay with credit cards, even though they charged a 2% premium. Didn't know what to expect on excursions. They even charged $8 for shuttles from the dock in one port.

Only one person cleaning rooms. You can se that all cleaning staff are stressed.

Ship tip

If you're not from the USA, calculate what it's going to cost you in your currency. They offer currency conversion, but at a ridiculous rate.
