Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
There is a new reservation procedure at dinnertime. Reservations Times for The main dining, Cha-bang and Cucina de capitan, were made only after 5:30. on the app and you were notified when ready. We never waited more than 10 minutes to get a table.

Lido Marketplace

The Lido buffet had the typical breakfast food. At lunchtime they served 2 kinds of gelato and had the best dessert cakes. The dining areas were vey spacious and the staff kept all areas spotless!

Loved Cha-bang! We chose the duck for 2 dinner, the chef came table side to slice the duck and gave us ingredients to make the rolled pancakes. Then we had the rest as stir fry. Fantastic flavors!

The new “Mid stage”had the huge 3 story special effects video screen that coordinates with the music. There was a live band, family feud games and various entertainers each night. We only went to one magic show in the main theater, very average not to exciting. The comedy club was always packed, get there early.

Fantastic a must for everyone! I made a reservation and it was canceled do to a quick rain shower . There were many openings so I booked again. You will be charged immediately on your account for your reservation. Beware you can cancel your reservation up to 2 hours before your time, but there is no place on the app todo this.. You need to go to guest services to cancel.

Outstanding service! The dining room staff was very accommodating and attentive. Our cabin steward was very friendly, professional and kept our cabin clean and tidy. We could always see staff constantly cleaning the public areas.

Ship Quality

We could always see staff cleaning the public areas. The buffet was always clean and the staff would immediately pick up dirty dishes. We enjoyed the new Mid ship area, very spacious to watch a show or just enjoy coffee or tea and relax.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This was a Aft corner suite. Loved the spacious closets, large shower, and vanity mirror in the bedroom. The balcony had a table and chairs for breakfast meals, 2 lounge chairs, a round lounging couch, a loveseat and a jacuzzi. We were in heaven!
