Review summary

We had a fantastic time and would definetly go again, we would probably try a different ship. Only downside of our vacation was how packed the ship was (it was full capacity) and how they had limited activities open. Our destinations were amazing as well!

Super easy embarkation. I liked the idea of different groups, it kept from people stampeding all at once.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Most of the food was great. However I did not like one of the main dining rooms. Italian night at the buffet also made me extremely sick in the middle of the night. But we were having rough seas as well, so that may have been a factor

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Everything was fun, when it was open! We had BEAUTIFUL weather the entire trip with the exception of the last day. My husband and I really wanted to do the ropes course, the rock climbing wall, and the stand up water slides. The rock climbing wall was open pretty much whenever they felt like it, it would be open so we would go change and come back, and it would be closed again. Extremely aggravating, so we never got to do that. We called guest services and they said "they're open until 6", and they weren't. The stand up water slides were closed because they "needed to be cleaned" .....something that should be done before 2,000+ people pay tons of money to do things like that on board. We spoke to a few people who picked this ship just for that and they were closed the entire week. And we finally got on the ropes course the last nice day of the week. The rest of the activites were fantastic, we were just a really upset they had a lot of things closed.

It was nice, just a little bit small. But you get what you pay for and that is the room we chose
