Review summary

Overall, we really enjoyed the ship and the ports of call.


1 out of 5
Since the ship was docked at the old terminal, there was no cover to protect us from the rain that day. I had to push my mom who is on a wheelchair all the way to the ship and we were soaked.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was great although towards the end of the cruise, the menu seemed repetitive especially at the Garden Cafe buffet. Good variety of beverages.

Onboard Activities

The cruise director was very engaging. Most shows at night were wonderful. The juggler was really good and funny, and the cast production was excellent. Didn't care about the musicians. They were so-so.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service was excellent esp around the public areas. Our room steward was ok. He seemed new. He always forgot to replace the tub mat.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship is renovated beautifully. Except that I kept losing my way to my parent's room on deck 8, it's a great layout.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Nice-sized room and bathroom with a tub. Much larger that the mini-suite we had at the Bliss.

Ship tip

This ship is very convenient for Greek Isles or Europe cruises. Very quick to get on and off esp when there is a tender.
