Review summary

Most of the ship was handicap accessible except for the miniature golf. there is plenty to do while on board. If you have dietary restrictions, the culinary staff is over the top. The wait staff and room stewards are very friendly. The photography group is lackluster. They only do the same poses at all the shoots. There is a lack of pictures at the various venues such as pool and private beaches.
