Review summary

We had a fantastic time and we’re looking forward to our next journey.

It could’ve gone a little better. We were on the line for special needs and the family in front of us was traveling with six people. Unfortunately we had to stand for a good 15 minutes, as there were only two agents.

No complaints the food was delicious. The restaurants on board provided excellent service.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The activities on board the ship for boys 15 and 16 seem to have gotten lost in the cracks when it came to playing basketball. I traveled with my 16-year-old, soon to be 17 and he loves basketball. Unfortunately all of the games were geared for 18+. So in order for him to play he had to say he was 18. They need to be more basketball tournaments for children under 18.

Jeffrey who took care of our cabin was fantastic. He maintain our cabin and kept it clean. He also supplied us with clean towels whenever we needed them. The only thing that we didn’t like was that we were in 8600 with a third person and the person who slept under the bunk have to be very careful about banging their head.
