Review summary

We enjoyed our cruise and were very pleased with the experience, the perks, amenities and staff. If you are planning a cruise, upgrade to a suite. Well worth the price.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Main dining experience was okay. We used the breakfast buffet once and found it very crowded. Since we had a suite we had a special dining facility for sit-down and made to order breakfast and lunch which was fantastic. The specialty restaurants and other complimentary restaurants were great with a high standard of food quality.

Onboard Activities
