Review Summary

The ship is beautiful. However the rooms aren't insulated and you get a lot of noise from the rooms next to you and the hallway. We were very disapointed in the quality of the food even in the specialty restaurants lacked flavor. We found the bar staff very unfriendly. The ship has a beautiful spa unfortunately the staff doesn't match the facility
