Review summary

Sailing on a new ship at reduced capacity due to COVID was odd, but even with the protocols, the staff of this ship made the cruise. Everyone we met was so happy to be back and the service was better than any cruise I’ve been on.

Platinum/diamond lounge was not open. PA system was impossible to hear.

The door sensors were weird to get used to.
