We had not cruised before so we were not totally sure what to expect. What we found was a beautiful ship with many options for food and drink. The pool and hot tub area was great and the buffet at the Windjammer was a hot spot for us for meals and snacks. The sailing was smooth and the staff was very attentive for the entire duration of the cruise. We definitely will cruise again.

Cabin / Stateroom

Very small for three adults. I would not advertise these cabins as available for up to 3 adults as there is not enough room to store luggage and move around the cabin.

Ship Tip

The Solarium area was a great place to read and relax. I understand the value of marketing your product but the constant activity of staff to sell drink packages, spa treatments, etc. did become a little annoying at times.

When we got off of the ship we learned that it was carnival time. Streets were closed as were many of the shops. We were not told about this while onboard.
