Review summary

Good ship but was a bit disappointed in the space for Caribbean. This ship lacked for warm water space. For a new ship was designed for cooler weather. Pools were so crowed not once did I get a chair even remotely close to the one and only pool. Most days not a chair to be found. The chairs were even so crowed up on the top decks took up the walk, jog paths so no outside exercise had to use the gym. Also I have to say the ship perhaps is a bit large for me 4300 people not enough space at all.

The Observation Lounge

Loved this space but for a Caribbean cruise this space was wasted. Should be half the space and again should of added another pool to this space. Outside the front were the piano was this place was a ghost town.

Wonderful and the staff was wonderful. Free style no reservations the way to go. Dress up if you want, but don't have to was great to have options. We always dress up for dinner.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Most areas to small for this size ship a lot of wasted space not used. Not a ship for outdoor space and pool areas. The observation deck inside was one of these areas. Should of been half the size and put in another pool.

Cabin / Stateroom
