Review summary

Next time we will look for a cruise that is at port for entire day or overnight so we aren't rushed. Overall a good trip, just a few disappointments as far as music of all genres/day dancing.

Like herding cattle, weaving in and through the building.

Pool area was fun but had envisioned a much larger area with dj/music throughout the day, that wasn't how it was.

Not a big variety of music throughout the day.

Cabin was very clean and larger than expected.

Ship tip

If you are a smoker, may want to think about a different ship. Deck 16 had an outdoor smoking area but was closed for private functions several times. The other options are the casino and a small enclosure by the pool that stunk terribly due to so many people in an area maybe 20×15.

Ports of call
