Review Summary

The ship was very nice and clean. It was our first experience. We didn't expect such a crowd of children, little did we know so many people brought their families on a cruise. Live & learn!

Main dining room, Romeo & Juliet, was peaceful. Windjammer & Jade were crazy busy & crowded.

Something for everyone at any time of the day or night!


5 out of 5
Especially enjoyed the ice show & comedian! Dancers & singers were good, as well as the movie "Creed" (acoustics hard to understand).

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Randy Johnson (head waiter), Adam Yanis (assistant waiter), were awesome. They were friendly, professional and accommodating.

Ship Quality

Very impressed with the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our stateroom housekeeper was great, our room was always cleaned properly. She also makes the cutest towel animals to come in to see in the evenings (bunny, monkey)!

Ship Tip

If you want peace and quiet, don't cruise on Easter week when the kids are out of school. Otherwise, the cruise was very enjoyable.
