most staff was pleasant but a few were not. Gangway staff could at least smile.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
All good except for midship where stairs lead to no where.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Layout was not the greatest when the bunks are out. We have been on other cruises with a better layout where having the bunks out, did not have a significant impact on ability to move around in the room. Also, initially our stateroom attendant would not combine the twin beds.

Ship tip

Don't use midship elevators or stairs...they lead to no where.
