Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Very small portions leaning towards European tastes. Used very little to no seasoning, some items were bland. Hamburgers on the buffet were excellent. Only used dark chocolate in deserts.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Pools are 7 feet deep, you can not stand up in them. Watch your Kids. Fitness center is way to small for this size boat. It’s the size of a normal size ship gym. But this ship has double the people. Always had to wait for a machine, even at 6am.

Very polite and helpful

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Design: poor design, no walking track and no open deck to walk. Dead spaces in the middle of the ship that causes you to change decks to go from front of ship to back of ship on some levels Very clean ship and new looking

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Balcony was solid steel railing, not see through glass.

Ship tip

Get a cabin in the middle of the boat on the lower decks. Boat is so large and long.
