What a ship !

Room Type: Balcony

This was our 5th cruise on one of the biggest ships we've  been on !

Ultra smooth sailing, hardly knew we were cruising most of the time .

Lots to do especially if it involves drinking! Lots of bars and lounges .

 Craft beer drinkers have there own place on this ship ,  its called the District

Brewhouse, what a great place to try something new and different.


Food ranged from fantastic to blah, many up charge restaurants to try onboard .


There were over 4000 people of every age taking this cruise, infants to centenarians . Surprisingly ,it did not seem crowded until you took the elevator.they were jammed up with people most of the time .


I would call this ship a family cruising ship but they do cater to singles who  can have there own singles sleeping  cabins and  gathering area ,for singles only .


Whole top part of the ship will keep those kids and parents happy with waterslides.

pools and many other outdoor activities .


Saw all the shows and entertainers on the first week,  everything was a repeat on the second week , won't be doing what they call a back to back cruise again !

Wound up having to get off  the ship  and go to customs  after the 8th day  because we went back into the US ! What a pain in the ass that was ! Instead of letting people that were doing a back to back cruise stay on the ship , they made everyone get off the ship !


All in all ,we had a good time, but don't recommend back to back cruises that return to the states in the middle of your trip to drop off and pick up more people !





Cabin / Stateroom
Not bad
well organized
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Not to bad for all the people that were going on the trip

Most housekeeping and waitstaff were great
Did not care for the people selling excursions the front customer service desk

Some dos fantastic some days not


Bring cash to spend shopping off the ship , the dollar goes along way on this trip !
Lots of bargains if you got cash.
