The cruise was our first one and have to say the staff did an outstanding job to welcome so many of us back. I am sure over time things will improve.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The staff was great in all the areas. I have to say the buffet was not what it was. One side of the ship was open and the other didn't. One did not know which side to go too.

JavaBlue Cafe

5 out of 5

Great staff! Very friendly and fast service. The person taking the orders wish I knew her name - so full of energy for being so early in the morning and continue during the same way.

Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse

3 out of 5

THe steakhouse is ok - not worth spending the money when the food is equal to the Main Dining room

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5

The ship may be big but the area's for the shows are seem to be much smaller. Center Stage was not the best design.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was clean but the new design for the bathrooms my gosh that was a nighmare! THe main dining room had the high back on the booth and if you set over there you could not see the shoooooowww time!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was fine. Since we had a big balcony the chairs should have been replaced with chaise lounger or put a foot rest for those of us with short legs. The room was cleaned always. We also didn't know the smoking area was in our direction. The smell of smoke would come up to our room and didn't make it comfortable to sit out there.

Ship tip

Make sure your room is not in the line of the smoking area.
