Review Summary

This is a very beautiful ship.  She is definitely made to appeal to the eye.  The food options are good in the main buffet and specialty restaurants.  However the main dining room left a bit to be desired with cold food coming out and taking a very long time to be served.  It seemed like they didn't know what they were doing at first, but then by the last 2 nights it got better.  Seemed like many of the staff were unfriendly and not wanting to be there.  Overheard one who was complaining about not getting time off.  The pool area was never crowded which was nice.  This ship however is not very well ADA equipped.  Not handicapped people using the special handicapped restrooms, the hallways not wide enough for people coming through in scooters or wheelchairs.  And if the cabin stewards were cleaning, then it was like an obstacle course to get around their carts with a wheelchair.  Also the theatre was not well planned out for those with handicaps either. 

The shows though were fantastic.  Some of the best I have seen.  The Gelato station was amazing as well and did I mention the Pizza.  Those were the bright points of the cruise!

Ship Tip

There is no stairway in the center of the ship. So you will need to use an elevator which can take forever.
