Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We were very pleased with the itinerary. We chose an inside cabin to make it affordable given the Canadian exchange. The Beverage package and upgraded meals were a true bonus. The food in the dining room was OK but service in the dining room was slow. The service in the upgraded restaurants slow but expected given the volume of food served. The quality of the food was excellent at Cagneys and Le Bistro. The variety of entertainment was very good. The Four seasons tribute was excellent. We chose not to participate in a lot of activities as we wanted time to do nothing but read and relax. There was a lot of sea time to do this. Leo the entertainer in the lounge area was wonderful.

Cabin / Stateroom
Small but manageable as yo are primarily there for sleeping. Great room steward
Embarkation and Disembarkation
slow embarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Leo was great. Live shows were wonderful
Service and Staff
Beverage package with prepaid gratuities does not make the waiters as eager to serve
Food and Dining
upgraded restaurants are worth it


Overall good. Turn Deck music off for Important announcements. Enforce age limit in hot tubs/lounges . Teens (18) who have permission to drink are providing drinks to other underage teens. Inappropriate Karaoke songs ( I was High/ graphic rap songs about sex) should be removed from the choice list.
