Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Vivian my room steward went above and beyond (rm 9348). She was available at my worst to assist in removing the all the sick out since I was using the garbage can lined with plastic bags. I couldn't handle it on day 5.... She was the best

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I always saw the ship being cleaned in places I would have never thought of

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
cleanliness was excellent but the bed mattress was too thin. I am larger so the bed was too small. When I 1st scheduled my cruise I had a king size bed and then someone changed it to two twins because I was with my granddaughter. We could have slept together in better comfort with room to turn over

Ship tip

make sure you have Dramamine or some other type of sea sick pills/patch
