Review summary

This was the best crew I’ve had on a ship in years. Everyone did whatever they could for you and always with a smile. We could have stayed another few weeks.

Lido Restaurant

Always found something I liked and everything was hot a fresh. Plus they serve it so nobody is handling the utensils. The staff was wonderful and friendly. Nobody ever said no if you asked for something they would run all over to get it for you.

Pinnacle Grill

Canaletto Restaurant

Strange sharing menu. My wife and myself don’t like the same thing so it was annoying that the wanted us to order one main. Food is just so so.

Loved my private cabana it wasn’t great in port because it gets a little warm but the cabana steward brought me a fan. It really helped a lot.
