Food was very good but was not hot. Enjoyed the convenience of dining times and seating accommodations.


5 out of 5
Quality of instruction of "personal trainer" was exceptional and very helpful. Having popcorn at the "Screening Room" Movies was an extra touch.

Very impressed with the stability of the ship. Decor was good but could use updating.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The restroom could use an update - looks dated. The hair blower is not a quality for drying hair thoroughly. It kept shutting off and had to keep finger on button in order to have blowing.

Too much emphasis on shopping. Sales personnel were too pushy

Victoria, British Columbia

3 out of 5
Time to see was too short and too late in the day. Could not appreciate much of anything although the downtown buildings were beautiful.

Pros: The variety of daily activities

Cons: Have to pass the casino which allows smokers. Do not make non-smokers have to pass any area where smokers congregate.
