Review summary

There is a lot of time changes on this cruise with no clocks in the state rooms or the common areas to help you keep up. We can’t adjust Apple Watches without Wi-Fi so please put more clocks that are correct preferably in state rooms but at least in the common areas that are easy to find and read. Leave ship maps in the state rooms or at least announce they are available at guest services... don’t put service charge reference on bill when it is actually gratuity, be clear what gratuities are.

The breakfast gravy was too thin was consistency of milk, bacon was raw, yogurt was spoiled, oatmeal way too thin and runny but omelets were good.

Spinnaker games at night were fun

The only reason I did not give five stars was because of the comedian Carl was awful and offensive! The ships production crew was awesome and very talented young people… The singing was great! We liked the Irishman but get rid of that obnoxious other comedian named Carl.
