Too large of ship....too many passengers. Breakfast buffet was like a war zone each morning. Staff had a hard time keeping up with cleaning the tables inside and out. Was expecting more for being a new ship.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
You can feel the vibration of the motors in the main dining room and the music was so loud the servers had a hard time hearing our orders. The food was average and nothing special for Xmas Eve. Outside Sunset Bar was fun\, specialty dining very nice. Ice bar fun.


3 out of 5
Rope course was fun\, long lines of course.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Stateroom staff friendly. Activity staff were overwhelmed with the number of kids on board. Adult areas overrun and no rules enforced.
