Review summary

This was the first time my wife and I cruised in 25 years. The new ships have become floating diners with 2500-3500 passengers on board. This ship had superb service, food, in a casual environment with upscale amenities. I had enjoyed it so much that I left a deposit for a future cruise.

The service and overall attitude of all the employees, weather service people or not was fabulous. There is a pervasive attitude on the ship of friendliness and you are important.

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was clean and appointed well, but too small for 2 people.

Ship tip

The food is excellent, but try to pace yourself. Otherwise you will need to purchase a new wardrobe.
