Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Cagney Steakhouse was the best. Moderno's was very good as well. Main dining rooms were good also.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Pools were a joke. Kids pool was always closed due to someone having an accident, poop/vomit. Then you had to use the adults only pool which was so over crowded you could barely move. Terrible set up. The ropes course was closed during sea days due to wind so they had it opened on port days. Granddaughter did enjoy that. Slides were okay . Fitness center no longer had a sauna you could use. Now you had to pay 59.00 a day for sauna and snow room use.
