Review Summary

We booked this ship because we wanted to surprise our parents (who had also booked but didn't know that we had). This is a very small ship!  Yes, it is beautiful, clean, and has a great staff.  BUT, if you are an active person, you will get bored!  There is no sport court.  The activities are mostly trivia games and dance lessons. The small bands playing in the Centrum were amazing, and the venue has great acoustics.  The theatre productions were basic, and not so great. You won't get the "glam" that other ships offer.  However, the food was amazing and the staff was attentive, friendly, and engaging.  If you enjoy reading, knitting, playing cards, and low key activities, book this ship.  If you need more action, avoid it. Also, you will feel movement much more on this ship than the other.

This was the least pushiest island for sales! You can shop and not be bombarded by taxi drivers and sales people.

We took a non RC taxi tour through the island. It was amazing! Yes, the taxi drivers are numerous and seem expensive, BUT this is their living and the cost of living/fuel is high. We had a great time.
