Review summary

The staff on this ship was top notch. Everyone was smiling, happy to be there to serve you. Every person that passed us said hello. The food was good in the at the buffet. Very good at the dinning room and excellent at the Asian menu (Tamarine?) restaurant. 


The age bracket is older, so the ship doesn't have those active lifestyle type of amenities (i.e. Rock climbing wall or water slide).  Our cruise was not sold out and the ship is smaller so we never waited in a line for anything (like Carnival).  Overall a he ship is in great shape, but probably needs a soft remodel in a few years. I would recommend to a friend!

Close to the food deck. A little bit moving chair noise from above.

Ship tip

Go to the Asian restaurant. Worth the extra money.
