Review summary

Our favorite part of the cruise was the entertainment....The dancers were excellent, along with a good comedian, good magician, and wonderful gymnasts. Unfortunately, our inside cabin was so tight compared to other cruise lines...Also, the one excursion we took through the ship involved a long boat and extra long bus ride with a disappointing tube ride down a river with no wildlife.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Loved the large shower...Rest of bath was good...Closet was adequate...Plenty of shelves...Missed a small sofa I've had on other shiplines...Very difficult to get around bed to get in.

Ship tip

Eat ouside when eating at the garden cafe....Have a brownie at the Blue Lagoon....If you are with a large group, plan on eating in several small groups or waiting a long time for service.
