Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Watched daily movie on the big screen, explored the ship, attended shows and listened to music in the lounges. Not much for the older, multi-cruiser by way of activities.

Everyone attended to us courteously with a smile

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Bad layout. I believe the 6th or 7th floor dead ends and one either goes up or down a flight to continue aft. This would be terrible in an emergency especially if many people are running in that direction and find a wall. Many passengers cannot negotiate stairs. The public restrooms were not regularly cleaned, had no towels, paper or otherwise and the hand dryers did not work. There was a big sign in each bathroom stating use paper towel to grab door handle, but waste basket was essentially empty, leading me to believe there had been no paper towels in these bathrooms for a while

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was larger than the staterooms I've had before and very clean. I did not like the shower-tub because of my age and will make it a point in future to specifically request a shower only. The balcony door was difficult to open.

Ship tip

Enjoy each day as it comes because no two will be the same.

Tremendously long wait, didn't seem to be a reason for it. Everyone on line was complaining.
