Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We ate at Taste or Savor every morning for breakfast the menu was pretty much the same every day with little variation the food was good and the staff is always friendly. The 3 specialty restaurants we ate in were Cagneys Steakhouse very good, LaCucina the Italian restaurant also very good and the service was excellent. The last one we ate in was the seafood restaurant Bayamo it was fantastic the service was excellent.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Did not really participate but the slides and ropes course was always full. People we sat next to on the deck said it was very challenging. We did participate in some of the trivia games and some of the other activities and they were all very good fun and entertaining We also did the Escape The Big Top it was challenging and fun also a little corny

Entertainment

5 out of 5
We saw Howl at The Moon 3 times Great show lots of fun sing along very talented musicians play requests from the audience. We also saw The Choir of Man very good show again talented entertainers a pub scene where the audience participates (drinking beer on stage) The last night they had a soul review in the Manhattan Dinning room during dinner singing MoTown hits, very good very good singers sounded just like the original artists. Went to the supper show with the magicians on the first night very good.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward room 12236 was outstanding very personable greated us our first night and explained everything we needed. Our favorite bartender GK at the five o'clock somewhere bar again very personable when we sat down he knew our drink orders and made conversation and entertained with jokes. Everyone on the ship went out of their way to say hello to you or good evening. The thing that impressed us most was the visibility of the officers they were out and about and stopped and chatted with the passengers, I've never seen this on a cruise before. The cruise director Alvin was also very visible he stopped by at dinner one night to see how everything was going and he stopped us on deck one night to check if the cruise was ok again very impressive the amount of time these people spent with the passengers.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was always being cleaned going into the dinning areas and the buffet they had hand sanitizer available.

Ship tip
