Review summary

For my first cruise, I went with a retreat group. It was a pleasure gaining my sea legs on this ship. I had lots of fun even without the drink package. Relaxing cruise with not a ton of people. Great food overall. No regrets with choosing a smaller ship.

Food and Dining

Most meals from the main dining room were great. Some lacked flavour. I preferred the Windjammer. Did not try any specialty restaurants.

This was my very first cruise and I shared a balcony room. Although a smaller ship, I had good fun and got hooked on cruising!

Ship tip

Go for it, get to know people, get to know the ship, get involved with any activities on board.
