Review summary

The ship was a title smaller than we were used to. The pool area was too small especially since all the kids had to use it. We did like where our room was located since it was close to everything and we never got lost! The centrum area where they held alot of shows was too small and too crowded for that area. There was a room called the Safari Room that should have been utilized more. We had late dinner and missed out on alot of activities. The dancing wasn't great since we were done so late with dinner and shows. There was a band that was excellent but didn't play enough dance music. Overall the trip was great especially the islands!

We have had an ocean view before and the beds were faced a different way which was better than having it behind our bed. We also had a mirror that was magnifying which was a great asset on our last ship.

Ship tip

Drinks were outrageous in price. A pina Colata was $13. Alot of people we talked to did not get the drink package because it was not worth it. Also if you plan on quiet time go to the solarium pool cuz that's the only pool without kids.

If you go on an excursion, take the catamaran called cool runnings. It was awesome!
