Review summary

The Ultimate Abyss was awesome, the water slides were a lot of fun. What I certainly did not like about the ship was there was no pool in the solarium. The state room attendant when I first boarded the ship didn't seem like he wanted to be there. He got a little friendlier as the week went on. My family purchased a Happy Birthday package for me, which included hanging decorations, a frame, pillow cases and a towel. One of the pillow cases had a stain that bled from off the ship's pillow cases, when I mentioned it to the attendant, he tried to wash it out and blame it on make up, I told him it was not my make up since I didn't wear any on the ship. The stain never came out, so I took it to Guest Services, they gave me a laundry voucher, but the stain still did not come out. The ship did make it good by not only giving me back the pillow case, but giving me 2 brand new ones. Then on the last full day, I decided to ride down one of the other water slides, after one guy was allowed on the line close to the slide, the attendant stopped me and told me he was not allowing anymore since they had to check a possible leak. By now I made my way 1/2 way down the stairs when other passengers were telling me the attendant was calling me back, by that time I was disgusted.

Not happy there is no pool in the solarium, other than that, the ship is beautiful.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The cabins are always nice, yet on this ship, the sink and bathroom is much smaller. I also was not happy that purchasing a balcony state room, there is an overhang over the balcony which I found very annoying. Also, will never get a stateroom on the 14th floor again, since it is directly under the pool deck and a lot of noise and banging could be heard.

Ship tip

Just don't get the 14th floor balcony room under the overhang and pool deck. And don't expect a pool in the solarium, because it is not there. But certainly do try the Ultimate Abyss, it is a lot of fun.
