Disorganized, long waiting times and very uncomfortable

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Main dining is ok at the most. Speciality restaurants are bad and additional charge outrageous

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Areas such as pool are too crowded. Not enough chairs for everyone. Just bad!

Again, very disappointing. With rare exceptions the performers are hardly professional quality.

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

Tired already / needs updating

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The main bed was ok. The sofa bed for our kids was too small, but on top of that 20% of the sofa bed was not covered with bedding as sheets were to small for the bed. Balcony was nice, but take the “mini” seriously and forget about the “suite”.

Ship tip

Don’t travel with them. The price you pay is then increased by another 20-30% with all service charges. Shore excursions are just crazy expensive as well and about 2x more costly than they should.
