Review summary

I have cruised a few times and this boat was the worst. Activities were few and far between. Entertainment was limited. They charged for everything. Our room was not kept well. I wouldn't book on this boat again.

You need to make reservations for all the shows. They fill up quickly. Common area entertainment was boring. Crazy fees for some of the activities.

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
Room wasn't kept well. Used Glasses, mugs, coffee and toilet paper was not replaced regularly. We ran out of toilet paper on the last day and the back up roll that was used by the third day wasn't replaced.

Cabin / Stateroom

Size was ok. Cleanliness was not great. Chairs on the balcony need to either be higher or lower so you are not staring directly at the balcony railing.

Ship tip

Bring board games, cards and activities. Days at sea are long and boring.
