Review summary

Will not cruise this ship again. The ship was rocking the entire time we were underway. They seemed to have small cabins to increase Pax Count.

It was quick except had to take a Covid Test because our Test results did not get to us in the 2 day window. But treated very well thru the process.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
The food selections were not to our liking, Buffet was very limited in choices. Only tried the Steak House which was OK but the Surf and Turf Steak was only 4oz at most. Service Staff in MDR was a disappointment. had to ask for butter when they brought out the bread, never officer coffee when desert was ready to be served. I could go on.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Did the Comedy show, Bolt was fun. Pools were over crowded for only having 65% capacity. Trivia sessions were fun.

Service and Staff

Dining Staff brought this way down. Even after talking to head waiter things still where just lacking. Cabin Steward was exceptional.

Ship Quality

Ship's layout was a bit strange but got used to it quickly.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Tiny Tiny Tiny. Even getting thru the cabin door was difficult. The bathroom was no bigger then the closet on the other side of the narrow passage thru to the bed and sofa.
