Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Did not care for the summer palace restaurant at all. The decor was very gaudy and off putting. Cagneys for specialty was the best one of the 3 that I tried. Buffet was just ok could have been more of a variety of options. Just seemed like it was the same day after day. Would be better if reservations were taken for non specialty restaurants.

Ship Quality

ships. Liked that there were 2 decks that you could use for laps around the ship. Deck 13 and deck 13. Ship seemed very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
I thought the size of the cabin was smaller than the cabins on other lines. Also storage space could have been better. Bathroom was really small. Balcony was good size

Ship tip

Don't over pack as there is minimal drawer space. Also no indoor pool/solarium as on some other dhipd.
