More catered to teens and kids. The show was nice. The entertainment for Adults was ok. The staff over seeing the games appeared to have been thrown in the position at minutes notice. The "CLUB" was like a LIBRARY even though a very small group was there. Recorded music was NOT dance music. If you enjoy ELEVATOR MUSIC you would enjoy.

Service and Staff

My dinning room waiters was GREAT. STAFF around the ship in bars, towel and pool area and especially the PIZZA Cafe work extra hard and friendly.

Cabin / Stateroom

Stateroom was clean and comfortable. However the A/C would cut off in the middle of the night. Complained no results. Just happened to talk with other guest and they mentioned the A/C problems as well.

Ship tip

Hope you are Ok with the pools, hot tubs and quite time. This is not a Party Ship unless you bring create your own.
