For the size, this ship was packed with many of the extras that a mega ship could have, including a Bowling alley, specialty Restaurants, and a climbing wall for those so inclined

Probably the least enjoyable of all of the Ports. A very unkept city.
5 out of 5

Pros: The great ports & no customs...

Cons: Seating area in the Buffet Restaurant. Catagory BA Veranda could have been bigger
