Service and Staff

Great wait staff. Our favorite waiter was in the Ocean Bar his name was Marlon. Always prompt and friendly, knew our names after the first day. His service kept us coming back.

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was clean and comfortable but position below Lido Deck a real mistake. I will never book on Deck 8 again.

Do not book a room below the Lido Deck.
