Review summary

This was my first ever cruise. I loved it. I hope to do it again soon.


5 out of 5
This was my first ever cruise so I have nothing to compare it to. I think embarkation went quickly and smoothly. There were a couple of moments of misunderstanding but they were cleared up right away. My party arrived early as eager beavers would, and it was no big deal. The crew showed us where to be and what to do and we were on the ship in no time.

This is a beautiful dining venue. Truly enjoyed the sea bass and cheese cake.

This is a lovely place. I enjoyed the upscale twist to a favorite food. Shout out to Sneha.

I LOVED this little spot. Rosie and Jerry are fantastic!! I really appreciate how well they worked together and took care of me and my sister. We only needed to show our card once and they remembered us from then on. I hope to see them again on a future cruise.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
I participated in some of the dance classes and used the fitness room to keep my eating in check. The main gathering area could use less seating on the dance floor in my opinion. There was Karaoke and comedy shows. I didn’t know that there were culture specific Karaoke times, otherwise I would have chosen a different time. I missed the main shows in the theater. You really have to get there early for a seat which means you miss out on other things. I wanted to play bingo but the price was higher than I liked and again the line was unbelievable. I had fun playing carpet bowl. Hopefully they can find a new place to play.

I didn’t catch the shows. I heard they were good.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward was the best!! Cilbert took good care of us and I hope to see him again. If I don’t, I know good things will happen to him. I’ve already mentioned a few of the beautiful people who work so hard to be sure passengers have a great time. Rosie, Jerry, Sergei. Now I can mention Guest services staff (Carlos) handling endless questions and moving a line faster than I’ve seen in a very long time :) Fransina, from the Lotus Spa did a great job and made me feel very relaxed and cared for. If I misspell a name, charge it to my head and not my heart.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was very clean!! I usually bring my own sheets and cleaning supplies when I travel and this time I had no need of them. I was so comfortable and relaxed. Everything that I saw in the common areas were shining and glittering. I didn’t notice any stains in the carpet from spills. I smelled either cleaning smells or food cooking smells. I didn’t feel overwhelmed by the size of the ship. I was able to get my steps in easily everyday. I would have liked an outside deck that went all the way around the ship, but I knew there would not be one. I mentioned this before but I would have liked less seating near the dancing area.

Cabin / Stateroom

I can’t add photos, I took them off my phone. I’m hooked on balcony rooms though. Never had one before, but not sure I could cruise again without one. I was surprised at how spacious the room felt and how perfectly functional it is. I didn’t feel cramped at all. The beds are so comfortable!! I slept like a baby. I’ll say it again, our room steward Cilbert took good care of us!!!

Ship tip

Bring good comfortable walking shoes.

This part of the trip was sad of course, but smooth and easy. The instructions were clear and given in several forms.
