Small ship. Lots to do and entertainment I feel they tend to nickel and dime you to much. All ships do that but this never let up. I paid for an exercise class ( $12) and it didn't even include a bottle of water.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The lido food was not good.. It was over warmed and held in steamers. Not fresh. Salad dressing and most food was under seasoned. I don't like speciality resturants as I have paid already to eat of the ship.


3 out of 5
Classes started either earlier than stated or later. The spa is not a private and it is like a raceway through it. Takes away from the experience.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Staff was not informed on anything. They were late for classes and events. Always started late .

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Nice size\, restrooms are close\, clean and nice decor

Cabin / Stateroom

Great Bed and pillows. Well serviced. TV channels are way to limited. Three CNN channels and not much else.
