Review summary

The ship is beautiful and the crew amazing. Lvira, Fredy, Yayat, Elwin and Placidus were extremely amazing. Their service was exceptional. The pool gets a bit crowded but it was still very enjoyable. The solarium is absolutely beautiful and the food is exquisite.

Main Dining Room

5 out of 5

Food, service, hospitality, drinks... absolutely everything about the Main Dining Room was perfect. For dinner, don't go to the Windjammer, go to the MDR! You will not regret it.

Chop's Grille

5 out of 5

Wow... Chops Grille blew my mind! Our waitress was Micheline. She was amazing. Very nice. She made us feel welcome. Also there was a greeter but sadly I cannot remember her name. But she was so sweet to us! The food was of amazing quality, the plates were presented beautifully and the view was breathtaking. We saw Miami being left behind and we also saw the sunset. The most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I know there's food all around the ship and you don't have to pay extra for it. But please do not take this restaurant for granted. It is so worth it, I will definitely go again next time.

Café Promenade

Everyday they had something new at Cafe Promenade. Desserts, sandwiches, pizza, fruits, wraps... the service was very very good and the presentation of the food was so beautiful.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship itself was impeccable and very well maintained. I only clicked 4 stars because the smell of cigarettes on deck 4 was horrendous. The entire deck (not only the casino) just smelled so so bad. Smokers kind of ruined that deck for me. Everytime I went to the dining room I had to hold my breath for a few seconds until I got in because the smell makes me sick to my stomach. It would be very nice if they could do something about it.
