Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Good variety of resturants. We ate in seven different ones for dinner and non really knocked our socks off. Food was good but not memorable. Service was better than the food.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We attended a lot but it was necessary to have a reservation to do the best ones like the go karts. Couldn't get on till last night and quite frankly they were a dissapointment after waiting so long. Found out that Heaven suites had unlimited passes for the week and others purchased weekly pass so open spaces were limited.
