Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Having cruised on more than a dozen cruises I was very disappointed to pay extra for so much entertainment - everything from shows to shooting pool. The new ship layout was nice with lots of inside places to easily congregate. Overall service was poor - there just didn't seem to be enough wait staff or bar staff. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Not as much usable shelf space as other ships; bathroom layout/space better than other ships
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Required to pay for too much of the entertainment; only bright spot was Howl at the Moon dueling piano show - outstanding !!
Service and Staff
Too few wait and bar staff make it take too long to get food and drinks
Food and Dining
Specialty restaurants food was very good; main dining room was just fair
