Enjoyed the trivia games. The thermal spa area was really nice. Attended the welcome back cocktail event which was really nice and also the celebration party which had great music and champagne.

Shows were fantastic... we went to Butterflies, Starwalker, and Beerprov. The aerialists were amazing!

Service and Staff

Our room steward Gene worked so hard and always greeted us with a smile. Verena the German language teacher was awesome too!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Ship was modern and clean. The only thing I would add is a walking or jogging track that goes all the way around the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was an aurea balcony cabin. Super nice. 13061.

Ship tip

My advice is to try the specialty coffees, take advantage of the thermal spa area if you can, and enjoy the jazz in the seaview lounge.
