Review summary

Not my fave the ship was very nice . The did not do well with the entertainment. The crew was kind of rude I’m which I’ve never experienced on any other cruise . The boat swayed back and forth until we made it to grand cayman and I don't know if someone else took the wheel but it was smooth sailing after that however I am still swaying back and forth at home since and I hope this dissipates .

The bed was comfortable. The size of the room was as expected. The balcony was filthy . The beds were thrown together in a hurry . This is my 5th cruise I’ve never had a filthy balcony like this one and the balcony door clicked and clacked all night while in motion not a good nights rest
