Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was very good overall everywhere we ate. Cagney’s steakhouse was exceptional. Teppanaki was very good as well. We really enjoyed eating breakfast in the dining room. It was relaxing with good service. Buffet was only fair. They never had romaine lettuce for salads. I ate salad minus the lettuce 3-4 times. Only ate there for lunch and late night.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Activities during the day were lacking and most required some type of additional fee. We enjoy trivia very much but it was greatly lacking on this ship.


5 out of 5
We really enjoyed the shows in the Stardust theater. The show with the Russian acrobats was exceptional. The rock show the last night was also excellent. Several of the singers were very good.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Service was good everywhere we went. Room steward Rodolpho was awesome and kept our room very clean. Waiters in restaurants very good as well. Bartenders were good in some bars and less good in others. Never rude however. Some just have better customer service skills.

Very slow getting off the ship and through Customs. Much slower than my experience with Carnival and Royal Caribbean.
