Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food was cold, and there was no comparison to Royal Caribbean in the buffet and in the formal dining area. We did not pay to eat ant the MANY pay for dining areas so we cannot comment on these. Why should you have to pay extra to get good food!


3 out of 5
The one show we went to was fantastic! Planed events were always started early, and when the staff members were asked about this they denied the started early.

Children's Programs

Kept our child happy!!!

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Life guard was useless (only one at the pool area). It took 15 minutes to get one of the hot tubs closed (after telling 4 staff members) that a child threw up in the water.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Restroom at pool area was out of order the whole cruise. We had to go at least 200 feet to go to the restroom.

Cabin / Stateroom
