Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Ate at Cagney’s, Teppinyaki and la Cucina for specialty restaurants, la Cucina and Teppanyaki we’re both good and cagney’s was excellent best meal all week by far. Skip savor and taste and go to manhattan room for main dining hall much better just make sure you bring pants to wear, recommend you set up your reservations ahead of time before you board will be piece of mind and don’t have to worry about getting into restaurants

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Best kept secret is the thermal suite spa pass for the week well worth the $200 get unlimited access for week never crowded use their pool, hot tub, steam room etc with never being over crowded all week just make sure you get a pass before you board or right away on first day very limited number they sell for week. Avoid over crowded main pool use spice h20 on sea days instead less crowded, Went to casino several times and don’t smoke never had a problem with being too much smoke don’t know we’re other complaints come from with this
