Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Best part of the cruise. Food and wait staff were great. Head Waiter Vincente went out of his way to have a pleasurable dining experience

Ice Cream Bar

Fast service. Cones were a little small. Great milk shakes

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Shows were good. Casino was small. Crew seemed rude and stuck up. If you had a question or complaint they knew how to talk in circles making you feel like it was your problem not theirs.

The show was excellent! Music and dancing was amazing

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Some staff went out of their way to help you; Head Waiter Vincente, Customer Service Rahaul, and photographer Yulliia. Other than that staff was arrogant!

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Rooms were very small. Not what we expected after cruising on another cruise line several times

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Cleanliness was fair. Bedding wasn’t changed after there was an obvious stain. Cabin was small compared to other balconies we have had on other ships.
