Review summary

Overall, a great cruise. Great crew. If you are at the level (Platinum or above) and you can take the ship's tour - take it! Great tour. Fascinating!


4 out of 5
Bad. We were supposed to have priority embarkation and did not. Plus the computers went down during embarkation making it even longer.

Our room steward was great as well as the waiters, waitresses and ship personnel in general. They are a very friendly crew and hard working.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
I loved having only two elevators - Forward or Aft. A great map was located at each bank of elevators so you could always figure out where you were.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was an excellent room. Huge bathroom for a cruise ship. Two people can be in the bathroom at the same time.

It is a big ship but a great ship.
