Review summary

While I liked the ship, there is a whole lot you can improve on. The heat of the food spoiled the choice. The other thing I didn't like was the having to walk passed the spa girls and having them trying to get you to buy. Please it is very off putting, if I wanted to go to the spa I would have walked in. Cruising is our favorite holiday, so will still be cruising.
