Review summary

A wonderful first cruise. You don't have a lot of time at the Ports so make sure to have a plan so you can visit all areas you wish to explore. Staff are wonderful and if you have questions all you have to do is ask, every staff member was wonderful (however a few were very difficult to understand)

Was big enough to find easy seating, wonderful service, much more relaxed dining with children. Lots of different choices and was ran very smooth.

Really fun place for dining and it was all you can eat for under $10... milkshakes are extra but were worth the $$$

The Venue was really comfortable and wonderful shows. Show up early we missed a couple of first showings due to them filling up 40 minutes before start time.
