Service and Staff

4 out of 5
For the most part they were friendly. Did have a couple of times when I went to guest services and they were not very friendly and looked like I was putting them out like they did not want to have to answer my questions and do their job.

Ship Quality

The ships design was nice and clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was roomy -- more so than I thought it would be -- and had plenty of storage space.

Ship tip

Bring magnets and make spreadsheet of what you want to do. They walls are made of steel so can post notes and spreadsheets on the walls.
