Review summary

I was disappointed with the design of the ship. I talked to a few people that had been on over 50 cruises. And they rated this ship and cruise as one of their worst cruises..

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Ate at the main dining rooms, buffet and the local. And they were wonderful.. ate 1 meal at Jimmy Buffet's.. and was very disappointed with it.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Not enough to keep 4,200 people busy. And they did most on those activities in the main area. Could never get a seat.

Shows were very good.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Waiters and bartenders were really good. but house keeping started out fantastic.. and went down hill as the cruise went on.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Ship layout sucked.. not enough elevators for that many people. And the pools were to small and only 2. So people saved chairs all day long. Also the observation lounge was alway full with people sleeping ( with their cabin pillows and blankets) just not set up for all the people onboard.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin was fine.

Ship tip
