Review summary

We have been on 9 cruises and this was by far our favorite. The ship itself was OK but everything else was exceptional. The fun, the staff, the food, the entertainment. This would be the first time ever that we would book the exact same same cruise (as long as the staff was the same)

zero wait time, arrived, went to counter, boarded 5 minutes later

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The best food we have experienced on a cruise, meals at main ding room exceptional and two full service restaurant with good food included. Buffet OK but we generally don't do the buffet

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We can't say enough about the activities, pool parties, game shows, dancing, and a whole lot more. The cruise director and his entire staff were exceptional.

Waiter was the best, steward kept he room spotless

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
OK ship, very clean - the food, entertainment, activities, and staff made this the best cruise ever. The pool was small and not enough seating/viewing of the water at low levels.

Cabin / Stateroom

very small, even for inside room standards
