Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Buffet is the best. We didn''t try the specialty restaurants this time. We did eat in the dining room when we had time.

Sugarcane Mojito Bar

5 out of 5

This is my most favorite bar. Location, location, location! The view is the best on ship. Feeling on top of the world with top rated bartenders and service. The party is always close by and if it happens to follow you in, it's always a treat.

Nothing like a reminder of home when you're away from home. Starbucks is a dependable jolt no matter where they are.

Le Bistro French Restaurant

5 out of 5

Elegance and beauty, there are no other words for this restaurant. From the linens to the food, this class act is one that needs to be had again and again, decadence of the seas.

Garden Cafe

5 out of 5

I have to say that I prefer a sit down meal being waited on by staff and listening for the cling of crystal and silver around me, but in those moments of sprinting to an excursion and needing to pack a meal on the run, the buffet at the café is just the spot to make trail mix, a quick sandwich, and finger munchies. Don't forget to pack baggies in your suitcase for just such an occasion.

Cagney's Steakhouse

5 out of 5

The bouquet of flavors that await you at Cagney's never disappoint.

Atrium Bar

5 out of 5

The atrium is always dancing with life and color from the world.

Loved the entertainment.

Mandara Spa

5 out of 5

When being waited on hand and foot all days isn't enough, just head to the spa and have them message away those blues.

Fitness Center

5 out of 5

I always enjoy that quick jolt of adrenaline just before an evening out. It livens up the body for a more lustrous and romantic evening.
