Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Enjoyed eating in the Windjammer due quality and variety of food options.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Enjoyed playing the daily trivia games but would have liked to have a 50's/60's music trivia in addition to the ones featured. Had a great time ice skating when available. Could have had more dance band music.


5 out of 5
The WOW factor applies. Excellent variety and skilled performers at every show. Especially enjoyed the comedians, Steve Wright in particular, and the Elvis singer. The illusionist was spellbinding. Ice show was phenomenal.
