Review summary

I enjoyed my cruise on the whole however the pool party was canceled due to weather.there should have been a plan B. I thought superbowl should have a tailgating type meal in a central spot this would have been a nice touch as we missed dinner to watch it. The shows were enjoyable. 70's night was a blast. The centrum band 4 on 4 was great.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining was very good we did our time very convenient. Clyde our waiter was very attentive. The buffet was difficult for me as I am gluten free and there was not a large selection One meringue cookie and jello for desserts boring. I asked several staff as to what items were gluten free at lunch but did not get much of a response. Breakfast I stayed with omelet station as safer so that was okay

Elnar kept our cabin immaculate. The Windjammer chairs were worn and frayed the ice cream machine kept breaking down all week. The ship is well layed out.
