If you've cruised before, this ship may be too small. But I think it's perfect for a first time cruiser. It allows you to get the feel of a cruise atmosphere, and the ship is not so big that it's confusing. It was easy to navigate. We had a balcony room which was nice. But it could have been improved ten fold if they had put a real table on the balcony instead of the little, mini table. It couldn't hold more than a few glasses or plates, which made it nearly impossible to comfortably eat meals out there.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
It was hit or miss with the food. We had a couple amazing meals. And then there were some dishes that were very poor. We were very impressed with the sit down free dining options. The staff was incredible, and the selections were great. Again, there was the soso dish here and there, but the wait staff would simply bring us something else if we wanted.

We felt the activities were limited. We went to finally play golf on Sunday night, but it was closed due to lightening. So we never got to play. And because the pool was so incredibly packed in the evenings, this left the casino or drinking, really. We weren't into the art colection on the ship. And the entertainment in the theaters wasn't too appealing.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Nearly everybody we approached was friendly. We made some connections with a few staff members in the casino, and they laft a hand-written note in our stateroom the following day. NIce touch that made us feel special.

We went snorkling. Very fun time. And the boat ride there and back was perfect.

Pros: freestyle dining options

Cons: lack of pool space, it was always crowded
