Food and Dining

Food and service in dining room were excellent. Windjammer food was very good but it was always crowded. After two experiences, we avoided buffet. The Hot dog stand and central park were very nice.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was clean overall. Amazing layout and design. Many things to do. Even though there were over 5000 people on the ship, it did not seem crowded, except for the Windjammer.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Compared to suites we have had on other ships, it was somewhat disappointing. It seemed to be an large deluxe balcony room. There was plenty of space. The walk-in closet was very nice. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was good. I was expecting a larger bathroom. Climbing in and out of bath/shower could be difficult for people with knee or hip issues.

Ship tip

Avoid the Windjammer during common mealtimes.
