Review Summary

The ship has some very nice spaces. Stateroom was very basic and could use a makeover\, but on the whole was fine. Beds were not very comfortable. Many of the common areas could use some maintenance and new carpeting. The Piazza is very pleasant\, though loud when crowded. Dining rooms are pleasant. Pools are pretty nice with lots of seating nearby. There are some beautiful lounges and some elegant smaller spaces. The entertainment venues are pleasant and offer ample seating.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The buffet was typically disappointing. Most of the food in the dining rooms was quite good so I didn't feel like I missed much by skipping the premium dining venues.


3 out of 5
There was lots of evening entertainment options. Daytime offerings were a little more sparse - that's ok though - more time to chill.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Our 11 year old had a great time at the children's programs. Hours could be extended in the evenings in my opinion.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We had darn good service throughout the cruise. Staff was helpful and responsive. There were time when the ship felt a little understaffed - gratefully\, not at dinnertime though.
