This was my third cruise and boyfriend's first, we were both impressed. Nice clean ship and special attention to keeping everyone healthy during cruise, hand sanitizer available everywhere and ship personnel stationed at dining room entrances to remind people to use the product. Loved the size of our mini suite with it's bathroom. There was ample storage for all our belongings. Stateroom stewards very friendly and professional, saw to our every need. Kept our room clean and stocked. Respected our privacy. Entertainment was lacking. Went to two different shows and left within the first 5 - 10 minutes of each. Resturants that were free could use some improvements and more variety in their daily menu's. Served the same food everyday.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Love the freestyle dining, but few choices of free dining areas open all the time. Every morning there was only one place to eat, so everyone went there, crowded and loud. Really feel that after paying the amount of money for cruise shouldn't pay to dine on "quality food " as you do in Speciality Resturants. That should be included in your cruise.

Entertainent was lacking, comedy and magician show we walked out of in the first 5 - 10 minutes. Band needs to be more versatile, played same songs each show. There was a non-stop art auction / jewelry sale in the main lobby.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Stateroom stewards were the best. Several of the lounge attendants remembered our names and waited on us like we were royality.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean and large public areas. Unfortunately the time of year we cruised the weather didn't allow much use of the top deck and pool areas. Not much variety in the onboard shopping.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Mini suite was absolutely wonderful. Spaceous, clean and well stocked. Plenty of storage, even for someone that packed a month's worth of clothing.

Pros: Service and personnel

Cons: Cover charge resturants and dining room choice
