I was very sea sick so unable to enjoy cruise properly. This put a dampner on the whole experience. Upon arrival it was fast and efficient and they explained everything clearly and very accomodating.

Saffire level 3 amazing. Awesome staff but the best waitors were albert and hearul. Not only with my table but other tables as well. Super friendly, bent over backwards for my kids especially with allergies. They felt like my family.

Pools. -overcrowded Rock climbing - ship was too rocky Wave rider. Lines were to busy so we gave up. Waits were up to 2 hours but you couldnt leave the que Ice skating - too croweded but cancelled many times due to ship rocking. Selection on movies awesome! Pingpong. Good no one was in the area. Drinks at any bar were good. Staff friendly especially with kids Everything on the ship was expensive including onshore excursions. US $$
