Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Had great meals in all dining rooms and buffet.Had dinner at Cagneys and LA Cucina once each and they were both great.

Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville

1 out of 5

Not for me. Used to be complimentary burger bar with fantastic burgers and build your own salad bar while you waited for custom made burgers. Now you pay. No comparison.

The Manhattan Room

5 out of 5

The biggest complimentary dining room with entertainment and dance floor.

Savor Restaurant

Waiters and room stewards were wonderful got to know them well on back to back cruising.

Ship Quality

Everything was spotless and layout was very much like Breakaway. Two sets of elevators was only a problem on first day and when Theater let out.

Cabin / Stateroom

Again being a single cruiser it was great and very comfortable with 2 chairs on balcony and room to sleep 3.

Ship tip

Spice H20 is adult only during the day a lot quieter than the pool with two hot tubs a bar and cave waterfalls
