Review summary

Had a great time on this cruise.  The only issue we had was the embarkation process.  After we finally got through security we then had almost a hour wait just to check in. 

The food was great, all our evening dining was done in Indago, the crew was great from the cabin steward to the senior staff.  Not a big fan of the anytime dining, miss sitting with the same bunch at night.  We also miss the welcome back parties for returning guests like we have on other lines.

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was a little small but after just getting off the Star we knew what to expect. Room had plenty of closet space. Very small toilet area that seemed to get smaller the more we ate.

Ship tip

Don't want to hit the buffet in the morning? Check out O'Sheans for a limited menu and great ocean views. Actually all 3 meals can be had there.
