Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Very friendly, helpul. Some are looking tired but still giving us the smiles. It could have been great if not one of them was not grumpy with my wife when he asked a question.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Like the ship. Cleanliness was good apart from two toilets by the elevators that were not cleaned when we wanted to use them. I have to go back to my room as I can not bear to use the toilet because of how dirty it is.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Bed is too hard and hurt my wife's back and of course can not sleep well, Apart from that, it is good.
