Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Rizzy and Darshan, in the Crooner's (Martini) Bar are great! They provide very good service, remember your name, your charge number and what you drink. Very professional as well as friendly!!! Raymond the head waiter in the Bourdeaux (any time dining), was very professional, took great care of my gluten free needs and overall just a really nice guy! Last, but not least, Emil Acupanna, waiter extraordinaire, was such a treat, professional, personable and quite an entertainer. We thoroughly enjoyed him.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was nice and very clean, but smaller and the cabins were small as well (showers awful).

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The cabin was small and the shower was the worst.

Ship Tip

- Go on a diet before the cruise because you most likely will gain weight with all the great food. - Anytime dining is really convenient especially when you go into port. You have more flexibility. - Great comedy shows and Danny, the acoustic guitar player and singer was excellent.
