Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

Would have liked to know in advance of the outdoor barbecues as we almost missed them. Would also like to see the evening's menu for each of the dining rooms on the TV in our room.

Kenosis was a great band. The piano player (Billy?) was very good.

Ship Quality

Very clean and maintained well.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Was always clean and taken care of. It was not well-lit (especially by the make-up/hair dryer area), and the bed is in the way of the full length mirror! It was tight, but sufficient for 2 people.

Ship Tip

It was hard to find a seat in the dining rooms sometimes, but the staff tried to help you find a place, even carrying your plate for you. It was also hard to find lounge chairs by the pool as people just put towels on it and you didn't know if it was saved or if towels were left there.

Stunning views, just not enough time there
