I had waited a long time for this particular ship and cruise and had talked another guest to join and it was just average. They did not really enjoy it.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Specialty dining and main dining rooms were great. Buffets were ok, not a large enough variety of foods. Not everyone likes every cuisine. I am African-American and there was no dishes from my culture. The Seadog dining was limited to about 4 hours per day and I know people can eat hotdogs all day long. Drink stations closed to early. Watched Dine-In movies and needed something to drink and the only station open is on the back of the ship. WHY? Also, now charging for popcorn?

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Ship design was good, but cabins and bathrooms were to small for the size of the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin Stewart was great and kept cabin clean and responded quickly with any requests we had.

Ship tip

If more than 3-4 people, either get 2 cabins or a Suite.
