Cabin Type: Balcony

It was my first cruise.  I expected it to be cold so I knew I wasn't going to be laying on the deck in a bathing suit with a Pina Colada.  But taking this into consideration, with all the on board cruising time I would have expected a lot more entertainment through the day.  That huge auditorium could have been used all day long.  I enjoyed the night time shows but that's when things seemed to get going, by that time I was almost ready for bed.  I will say that the ship was clean, the food was good and the staff were very, very friendly.  We had a cabin attendant name James, he was the best.  He was super.

It was small but I expected that.

Ship Tip

Eat in the restaurants when possible, too much commotion at the buffet. You'd think for some people it was their last meal.
