Review summary

Even though it was a few rainy days, I still enjoyed my time on the cruise ship. Watching the shows, activities, playing in the casinos, enjoying the drinks, and having a good time with the crew members and spending time with my family was worth my while.

Bliss Ultra Lounge & Night Club

The music selection was not that good to me, it became very boring, didn't really cater to all ages. It was more suited for the younger crowd 18-25 year old, in my opinion. But the atmosphere is cool. Very small dance floor.

Service and Staff

The Bartenders were really friendly, attentive, had a blast! The Assistant Maitre'd at O'Sheehans was amazing and the Food Service Crew Member who "washy, washy" everyone's hands before entering the buffet is simply fabulous!

Ship tip

The staterooms are small, but if you like to drink, definitely go the the unlimited drinks package... its so worth it.
