There were a lot of activities as far as crew setting them up, but i felt the ship was lacking extra amenities, sometimes on the ship I felt bored.

The comedy shows were great, the Island princess Orchestra was amazing as well as some of the bands they had playing in the different areas and the guest musicians were also good.

The service and staff were wonderful and friendly.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I think this ship is having issues with plumbing. Sometimes the hallways smelled like poop and I am pretty sure everyone in my party had issues with clogged toilets.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was small but clean, not very modern in decor but livable either way.
