Review summary

Very nice cruise. We are Celebrity Ceuise people but this was a nice change. Not as many beautiful desserts, but food was great. Shower in room was so great!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Great. The Lido buffet experience was new to us- everything had to be served to us- we are used to getting our own on the other ships. It was ok after we got used to it but not quite as fast in lines.

Onboard Activities

The gym was excellent

Loved Music arrow. Shows were excellent. Big problem is that theater is too small- had to arrive 45 mi utes before showtime and sit there. And then while waiting, nothing happening. They could have had decent music playing.

Service and Staff

Great staff all around

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Great except for small theatre mentioned above. They would need 3 shows a night every night to take care of this problem.

Took one hour in immigration line- that may not be anything Holl Am can control.
