Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Two of the 3 dining rooms had the same menu every night. food was good. waiters and staff were the "Best!" Breakfast buffet got a bit old by end of week. We enjoyed the afternoon tea time! It was so much more than just tea, the food choices were amazing and changes every day.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
There wasn't much to do on the ship, but we didn't select "The Paulie" for on ship activities. We didn't spend much time on ship, took advantage of the beautiful islands!!

Shows were good, a little limited. No comedies or specialty acts.

Ship was clean, but the design was old. The charm of it, that here weren't thousand of guest. Made it feel very imitate. There was nowhere really to walk after dinner.
