Review summary

I love the ship. Love the crew. I think the ship is more than large enough and has enough venues to still be comfortable at 100% capacity.

No issues. On the ship in 15 minutes

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Most of the wait staff was first rate. The only issue I had was the service when I dined alone late for breakfast in the MDR on the 4 the day

Onboard Activities

Lots to do.

I would’ve been happy with more non-game show entertainment on the main stage.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Room steward did a fantastic job. Bartenders are great. With one exception the dining room service was outstanding. The only issue I had was with the scheduling of the bar waiters. There was either one asking you for a drink every five minutes or none to be found for an hour to time. I don’t blame that on the staff that’s a scheduling issue.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The Shipleys practically brand new mostly because it was

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The bed slept great. The third person our cabin said the sofa bed was comfortable. Lots of closet space. The bathroom was a little small but we dealt with it. Our steward kept the room very tidy

Ship tip

The ship is huge. There are five pools that everybody can use. Spend a lot of time walking around learning where everything is.
