Review summary

All in all we had a wonderful time. Relaxing and adventurous. Beverage package and specialty dining is a must if your a drinker and want more food variety. Worth the money for sure

Lines were long but moved along okay. The curbside luggage drop off was great

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Most of the food was great and plentiful. Nice variety and options.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The physical onboard activities were just okay. The rock climbing wall was only open a few hours a day and the pools were bombarded by teenagers


5 out of 5
The shows were very entertaining and able to offer a little bit of everything

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Staff is helpful and courteous. Only complaint is on the same deck and same type of stateroom some stewards gave little extra perks than others

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship is clean and well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

The room was accommodating for myself and my partner. We felt comfortable without feeling like we were on top of each other
