Review summary

We had been to all three ports on this cruise. We just wanted to go on the new ship. I can’t imagine the ship being full capacity. There was already a shortage of seats in the grand central area and in the comedy clubs. We had around 3800 passengers and full capacity is 6500. If you want to watch a show, play bingo or go to comedy, you need to arrive 20-30 minutes early

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Very easy embarkation. Our check in time was 10:30-11, we checked in at 1:15 and we were on board a few minutes after 11

Top notch entertainment

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
This ship has the best staff of any ship we have been on in 16 cruises. They go above and beyond every time you’re in contact with them!!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
It is a beautiful ship with the planned “zones”. We didn’t care for how chopped up everything was. My husband likes the buffet on lido and I like the deli and guys burgers. They were all on different decks. The deli is 8 decks below lido.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
We had a cove balcony and we loved the room itself. The bathroom however is so tiny you couldn’t turn around in there. You could literally brush your teeth while using the bathroom
