Just right!

Sail Date: December 27, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was our first cruise and we loved it and will cruise again. The size of the ship was just right(about 2100) and not too big. They had a good selection of activities to do on ship and on shore.  The food was fantastic. The demographics of the folks was just right for us.  We did not want a ship full of children with parents, young adults or just retired folks.  The blend was just right so that we were able to enjoy ourselves and relax. Our travel agent did a great job of telling us the little ins and outs of cruising before we left. This allowed us to have a very worry free trip.

Cabin / Stateroom
good cabin for a first timer. I think next cabin will be closer to the middle of the ship

Food and Dining


If you do not eat dinner at a specific time, it is very important to get the unassigned dining option so that you can enjoy your onshore time without rushing back.
