Badly Designed Ship and Poor Food

Sail Date: March 28, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The ship is designed so that all the action is reduced to 3 floors.  During sea days these floors become quickly packed with people and found the areas to be crowded and tightly closed.  The service at most places was terrible.  The food in the main dinning areas was poor and forget about eating at the buffet. The food in the buffet areas was the worst.  Food in the specialty restaurant was good and would recommend purchasing a specialty restaurant package over the drink package.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin design was ok and the bathroom was actually larger than on most ships. The room was very noisy due to the kids area on the 15th floor. Often the kids would be active till midnight.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Poorly designed ship. Compared to other ships it was actually difficult to find bathrooms. Most times the bathrooms were very busy and dirty.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
It was difficult to find activities during the sea days and in the evenings unless you had a show scheduled.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


The ships ports were excellent and would recommend any of these ports. Try to only schedule this ship if you will have good weather and can enjoy the outdoor pool area. Don't expect much in the way of onboard activities. Buy the specialty dining package.
