Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We ate in both the main dining room and the buffet. In terms of food, it was good, and varied. The problem in the buffet is that it was crowded and sometimes it was impossible to find a place to sit. Sometimes we had to head to the main dining room for breakfast and lunch and were astonished to find that it was also buffet style with the option to order from the menu. Dinner was good especially the Indian buttered chicken which was so yummy.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
There were activities all the time around the ship such as games, dancing lessons and lectures in the spa. Each night there is a show in the theater and every bar had live music. There are two pools and four hot tubs. The pools are not so crowded and you will always find a place in one of the hot tubs. For kids there is a play area.

The night shows at the theater were great with singing, dancing, magic, acrobatics and juggling.
