Review summary

We were very pleased with rooms, cleanliness of ship, meals  in main dining were excellent, service was excellent, & activities for teens and young adults was great.  In general we as a family had a great time.

My husband and I had a Jr. Suite.  On last day our deck was painted and we could not use for 2 hr. and then they shampooed carpet and again  out  of room for over 2hr.  Since we chose not to go ashore as we had been to Victoria Island before, this was very unsettling.

Also evening entertainment was scheduled so we were usually not able to attend as we chose a 8PM seating.  The two shows we saw were only of moderate quality.

I would , however, recommend this ship to others, especially if young adults or teens are also traveling.
