Review summary

Very happy for a first cruise & we were told that it will be hard to beat in comparison to other cruise ships. Just needs some tweaks here & there & it could be the best of the best. Overall 8/10

Luggage came damaged with handle ripped off. Could not be fixed or replaced!?

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was average at times & repeated a lot. Some drinks like sprite or solo did not taste like the mentioned drinks. Some Mocktails where toooooo sweat!

Onboard Activities

Act's where average. I would be disappointed if I had to pay for this in a Theatre. Entertainers where rude & snobby. Not tat I cared but compared to other staff, these people where too good for everyone else.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Most staff went above & beyond & then there are some staff that are giving it away that they are just milking the system.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship shape is the correct term I think.

Cabin / Stateroom

Don't remember door number. Air was coming out of the USB outlet next to the bed when balcony door was open?

Ship tip

There should be a day drink package not entire cruise time. I hardly drink & was hoping to try a few cocktails maybe throughout the 14 day cruise time but I was told you must purchase a package for entire cruise. This to me was a downer experience & decided against the package.

I had a mobility Knee scooter but had no one help me with luggage to taxi or even let me take trolley to taxi as my wife would have bring it back.
