Ship Quality

3 out of 5
This ship was too big for my liking. My cabin was in forward section and it took a long time to get to the elevators. Next time I'll know to book something closer.

Cabin / Stateroom

Inside cabin was nicely laid out and comfortable.

Ship tip

Book early and take advantage of selecting a cabin close to the elevators.
