There was so much to do on the ship.  It was very clean and the staff was very nice. Make sure and get the All Inclusive Drink Package if you like to imbibe.  Definitely worth the money. We had a great time!  We will definitely book again.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was great and there was a good variety. This was our 1st experience with freestyle dining, and loved it. The buffet had a lot on it, the only problem was that is was very crowded. The lines need to be addressed so it flows better. People were knocking into people everywhere.

Onboard Activities

The pools ARE NOT BIG ENOUGH!!! I have been on other cruises and the pools are a lot bigger and more comfortable. Also the sides of the ship were very hot under the canopies. There needs to be a better design.

Everyone was great. I'm not sure of our cabin steward, Dominic, was just shy or unhappy. He didn't seem to like it when a request was made.

We had plenty of room. As stated, our cabin steward didn't seem overly happy, but did everything we asked.
