Review Summary

We were very impressed of the different restaurants to select from. We had no problems getting any reservations or waiting long for a table. All the staff were very courteous, kind and helpful. The ship was so big it never felt we were traveling with almost a couple thousands of passengers. We were so pleased with all the activities available.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We were very satisfied of the variety of food in the different restaurants. We were able to change reservations without any problems. We were able to be served at all times of the day, even when it was very early before restaurants opened. We preferred the other restaurants than the market place buffet. The buffet's food was not as hot.


5 out of 5
We were impressed that there were many activities available.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All the staff were very courteous and helpful. The servers were always very polite and worked very hard at all time. The stateroom staff were friendly and took care of our needs at all times.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was large enough to be able to enjoy peace and quiet. Most of the public areas were cleaned, except one day several of the toilets were overflowing and it was messy in one of the public restrooms. Otherwise, all the areas were very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a guarenteed room and was very pleased of the location. The size was bigger than expected and it was always cleaned with clean linen.

I felt it was a waste of time if you didn't book any excursions. Nothing to see at this port.

Cons: none
